Open Letter to My Son on Your Birthday

Today makes you 10! Oh goodness, where did the time go??
I still remember bringing you home from the hospital like it was yesterday. I still remember the very first time I felt you kick. I can honestly say that I never knew LOVE until I gave you life, but really, you were the one to give me life. Being a mother doesn’t come with a manual and as much as we try to be the best mother in the world, I had those moments when I felt that I wasn’t. But seeing your smile and watching you sleep every night made me think that I did a pretty good job because I created the best son a mother could ask for. This journey as mother and son has been quite the journey, filled with good times and bad times. I look at you and just think how blessed I am to be your mommy; I want to give you the world but protect you from this world at the same time. I am so proud of the little man that your growing up to be. Always trust yourself and use your intelligent mind and big heart guide you as you make choices. I am grateful for the unconditional love that we share and I pray for nothing but joy and happiness for you. Know that nothing you do will ever make me love you less but instead I will continue to love you more with every passing moment. Okay, okay, I promised I wouldn’t make this letter long and sappy. But I love you dear son; please don’t drive me to crazy as now you are officially a pre-teen.
