Yes my oldest...
You have been the trial of our many errors!
We look back and know that it is true...
Kids are pretty resilient to parents mistakes!
You are so strong and loving and it truly has been a joy to raise you!
Although I wish so many times I could turn back the clock and...
read you one more story,
play one more board game with you,
look at your lego creations a little longer,
appreciate your creative art sculptures made from wood,
not worry about bedtime,
appreciate God's outdoor creations going on hikes,
and receive ONE more crayon drawing when I was the best thing in your world!
seeing you become the man you are becoming and
watching the fruit of my labor
is rewarding and I would have it no other way!
I love you and I anticipate many amazing things to happen in the coming year!
You are God's gift to me and I am so thankful that I was choosen to be your mom!
I love you son!
Happy 19th Birthday!
No matter where you go or what you do,
I am always here to support you and be your biggest fan!
