Happy 26th Birthday, Josh





I want to dance on the moon,
I want to write across the stars,
" Happy Birthday Son."
I fell in-love when you were born,
as I held you.
Your eyes followed me,
your finger holding mine.
I sang you words of love
about being my miracle,
my everything.
As you grow older,
my love grows deeper
walking through the universe
holding hands,
our hearts intertwined.
I sheltered you from the storms,
gave you comfort through nightmares,
turned ordinary days into magic.
I fed you books,
I fed you love,
I gave you wings to fly.
My seeds of love,
my seeds of wisdom,
you treasured.
You grew into a man
that follows his moral compass,
a humanitarian,
a dreamer.
You gave me life,
you made me whole.
You are my bookend,
you are my world,
you are the love of my life.

Dear Josh,
You are an amazing man. When I had you I was 24, younger than you are today.  I knew that you were my everything and that I wanted to be the best mom possible. We have shared a life filled with happiness and sorrow, but we always had eachother. I am so proud of the man that you are. You touch others everywhere you go, because your kindness and compassion shines through. I love you forever.

  34. It sounds as though you both did well for each other. It makes sense that you raised a son who's a humanitarian who spreads good things, after all you "fed him love" as you feed your lucky readers.
