Happy Birthday to My Eldest!

Happy Birthday to my Eldest!

I would be remiss not to mention the birthday of my eldest son.  He was the little guy who first made me a Mommy.  He was the first human being to really teach me what “unconditional love” meant.  I thought I knew….then he was born.  So when the second one arrived, I was prepared and understood how that love multiplied and didn’t divide.

Being a mom is not the easiest job in the world…in fact, I personally think it is one of the most difficult.  We got through the necessary stages…newborn, baby, toddler, preschooler, young child, child, preteen, teen, post teen and now Adult.  I am still working on being a mother of the Adult stage. And I have made plenty of mistakes…

I am proud of my children.  But I often say that I cannot take the blame for their failures, anymore than I can take credit for their successes.   They are adults.  They are still a delight to me.So I give God the praise today for allowing me to learn so much from my first born.  I thank Him for trusting us enough to raise him.  And I say Happy Birthday…to my once little buddy.

“I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him.  So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord.” 1 Samuel 1:27-28

Be blessed~
