Last night when I prayed by your bedside, I prayed that God would always keep you safe and healthy and happy. I thanked Him for your empathetic heart, quick hugs and endless laughter...I hope those never change. I prayed that this crazy adventure we call life right now builds a love of travel and a appreciation and love of all cultures, people and places. I thanked him for your love of endless stories, books and songs and prayed that you continue to use your imagination as vividly as you do now. I prayed that you will be a good listener like your daddy. I prayed that you find something that you love to do and can spend your life doing it. I prayed that when you do experience disappointment or heartache, that you will aways be able to find a bright side. I told God that I am doing everything I can to be a good mommy and I prayed for the strength and tools to be the kind of mommy you need...I asked for help to make sure that you love Him. Most of all I thanked Him for picking me to be your mommy...I am so, so grateful.
You are the very best part of me...you know exactly how to make me smile and laugh (even when you are in trouble) and are always the highlight of my day. You are such a nice boy and I am so proud of you. It is sometimes hard for me to watch you grow up, but I am always so excited to see what God has planned for you and what kind of person you will become. You will always be my little bug and I love you so, so much.
Happy 3rd birthday Parker!
