17 Years

Seventeen years ago today at 2:12 AM this precious little peanut impatiently made an early entrance into the world. I was overwhelmed by the love I immediately felt for him just seconds after his birth. 

And over the years that has not changed. He has taught me some of the most important lessons of my life about love and motherhood. He has pushed me out of my comfort zone and stretched me beyond my limits. I've done things I didn't even know I had the strength to do because of this boy.

Sometimes, I look at him and am just overwhelmed. He is so amazing. I am simply in awe of the amazing young man he is becoming. Life isn't always easy for him but he has an innocence, love for people, and sweet spirit that inspires me. 

Happy birthday my sweet boy! I am so lucky and blessed that I was made for this and God gave me you!
