Twenty six years ago tonight I know right where I was and what I was doing. I was still in disbelief that I had a newborn son. I was propped up in the hospital bed gazing into the eyes of my newest little angel. A beautiful, bright eyed little boy who had already filled my heart to the brim with love. Who would be coming home to complete me as a mother and join his 2 sisters, in making my life a most enchanted one. After all these years have flown by he holds his own little child, and maybe now he has a glimmer of how much I love him. He has given me so many happy memories, so many years in the bleachers, so many laughs, so many jokes, so many bright spots in a dark world, so many proud moments as a young leader and child of God. He taught me much more than I think I ever taught him. It's not easy being a parent. But, that night 26 years ago all I could do was sit and stare at him. All in blue and all snuggled in my arms. If I could have a basket of wishes, one would be to recreate that night and make time slow down just a little. Happy Birthday Mitchell! I love you.

There is just something about a Momma and her little boy.
Perhaps we can catch a glimmer of what God was thinking when he looked down at Adam!

Beautiful tribute to your son. Blessings to you both.
