You are a real treasure in my life. A constant source of Joy and Happiness.
To My Dearest Son,
I cannot believe that today is your 14th birthday. It seems like just yesterday you were born and our lives changed for the better in an instant! You are an amazing young man and we feel so blessed to know and to love you. We are so very proud of you and we are so proud to be your parents! You are everything we ever wanted in a son and more! My heart fills with happiness every morning when I hug you good morning and I love watching you as you go about your day ~ I love how kind, loving, caring and beautiful you are both inside and out ~ you are handsome, intelligent, compassionate and athletic. Your gracefulness in how you treat others and how you move throughout your day is astounding to me. With such amazing ease, you travel your days and nights and I am so blessed to watch as you live your life in such a loving way. I love to hear about your day when you get home from school and I am grateful that we can chat like friends and like Mom and Son…I love that you share your day with me and that we can talk about anything. I love that you have built friendships with many different people and that you are friendly to everyone. I love that every night when we kiss and hug goodnight, I now have to put my head on your shoulder…I am amazed how fast you’ve grown up and I am proud of who you are! I was so happy to make your favorite meal last night which was one of my meals…I was so happy that you like my cooking! I am very excited today to celebrate your birthday with you ~ and have our entire family together to celebrate YOU! What a beautiful day it is today! The sun is shining, the weather is perfect ~ all is as it should be in order to celebrate YOU! You continue to make us so proud of you in everything that you do…thank you for being our perfect son! We love you with all of our hearts for always and forever! xoxo
I hope this says it all…I always believed in praising my children and disciplining them as well…but I always want them to know how special they are to me and how much they can make a difference in life by being kind. I am very blessed to have such amazing children and during this period of time, I thought it appropriate to be grateful for them! So here it is!
Have you told your family how grateful you are for them? Perhaps today’s the day?
Have a grateful Sunday!
