Happy Birthday to my baby - Sept 24

My sweet boy, I dream of you long before you were born. I remember vividly the moment when I saw you. Not in the physical sense, but in the spiritual sense. It wasn’t when I felt the first kick of your precious little foot in my womb, nor was it when the doctor lifted you, and in the slumber of surgery I saw you, still wet and screaming. It was in that joyful moment when I realized God meant for you to be; that you'd become what you are today. You see, God had you in His mind ever since the beginning of time.... I had you in my heart ever since I thought of you the first time.

Before you were born, I already had two little angels --your brother and sister-- silently, I waited for you. Right after your litter sister was born, grandma talked about sterilization. My hopes were shattered. How could anyone decide my life and take away from me the joys of having you? I would not let anyone do anything like that...

You see, they didn’t know you then, but I did. I had already seen you with my heart... and I loved you long before you were even formed.

Of all of my children, you are the one with eyes that can see the unseen. You are a sensitive soul; intuitive, caring, gentle, and a seeker of wisdom, always looking for purpose and meaning. Your life has no artificiality but, rather, a radiation of inner richness. You’re a sweet reward to me, and a blessing from above.

I couldn’t be any prouder than I am today of you; I loved you from the start. It’s a privilege to be your mother. Happy Birthday, Brian!

( Isn't he handsome!)
