Happy Birthday! My Most Awesome Son!

Nineteen years ago today the moon was full and you could wait no longer, even though your idiot mom thought it would be so cool to have a child on April Fool's Day :) I thank God that you had the good sense to have none of that foolishness. I have thanked God for your very existence every day of your life...even through your worst times, which were few and far between. I don't talk about you much on this blog, in fact, I think I've only mentioned your birth story and how funny that was. You are way too special to talk about on a random day in a random way. You are the most wonderful child I could have ever been blessed with and even though I get grouchy sometimes I have no complaints because I know that you are one of a kind, the closest thing to perfection I have ever witnesses in another human being and I am truly blessed to have you. I'm sure there are other children out there that have to do what you do, but I'm also just as sure that there are no other children that do it with such grace. You were on my team when I decided to go back to school, even though you knew it would mean major sacrifice for the both of us, but for you especially. You sacrificed willingly and happily for our greater good. I just want to take time on this day to say that I appreciate all that you've done and promise I will make it up to you one day. I love you with all my heart. Mom

  3. Lovely. Prin. I can really relate, though I'm a whole generation removed from you (I'm 76). I was a single mother of two -- I, too, balanced career and motherhood -- I'm a singer-songwriter-musician. It was chaotic and difficult, but somehow we all survived, and my kids turned out wonderfully (Where did I go right, I always ask).

    I wrote a musical, SEVEN AGES OF WOMAN, which has been performed many times by many different combinations of people. One of the songs, IT'S A MIRACLE, is about the miracle of birth. If you'd like me to copy the lyric for your site, I'll be happy to.

    I'm enjoying exploring your blog. I wish I had the technical knowledge you have so I could have such diverse items, pictures, fonts, other sites.

    I'm so glad to have met you. Joan Wile
