Celebrating Seven

Seven years ago, this great guy made his introduction to this world on Labor Day. I remember the day so clearly. I never imagined how much my life would change. Not in the way so many people had warned me...often speaking in terms of loss. When this guy entered my life, my life became so much richer.

He has taught me (and continues to teach me) the limitless depths of love with his beauty and grace.

As a new parent, I was also told that the journey of parenting just gets better. I thought it was pretty spectacular from the get-go. I am amazed that it does get even better.

Happy birthday, dear son. Being with you on this journey is one of life's greatest pleasures.


  1. Happy Birthday, big boy!

    So- were they both born around the same time of year?

  2. Yes, he's one fine little boy. Blessings and Happy (belated) birthday.

  3. I love reading such positive comments about parenting! I (as an admittedly childless person) have believed it can be wonderful to be a parent, and hoped for the very best in that department. It's nice to see some parents who are not disenfranchised. Makes it less terrifying.
