Another Celebration!

Another Celebration!

Well Thanksgiving and Christmas, have come and gone, we celebrated as we watched the ball dropped in New York City on New Year’s Eve, clinked our wine classes together filled with sparkling Apply Cider and prayed in expectation of The New Year!  I don’t know about you, but I always tend to feel a little sad after the holidays. I really enjoy spending the time with my family and do not want it to end so quickly, but onward we go!  Then this past weekend, exactly a week later,  we were supposed to get a few inches of snow in the south, which you may or may not know is a huge exciting deal, but instead, in our neck of the woods, ICE…not good, and bitter cold temps so that the ice hangs around!  Yep, the holidays are definitely over and now I am looking to another Sweet celebration!

On January 29, 2004, I gave birth to my second little miracle!  Yes, my husband and I were married twenty-four years before we conceived him.  Yes he rocked my whole world!  A 7 lb. 19 1/2 inch little screaming red head came into my world and I have never been the same since.  My little red headed blue eyed baby boy won my heart on that day and continues to win it every single day since.  He brings us such joy as he is quite the character!  He is full of mischief and his little impish smile is priceless.  His tender heart toward God and his family, however, is what moves me to tears every time.  He is smart and keeps a smile on this Mom’s face.  He is wise beyond his years. He is also talented and gifted beyond measure.  He can do anything with his hands, as he is mechanically inclined, plays drums, has always loved tools more than toys.   He has his Daddy’s demeanor and personality, and looks exactly like him.  I love him so as he will always be my baby boy.

This year, he will be a teenager! Wow, where did the time go?  As a Mom, this brings up the same kind of feelings as when the holidays go away.  It is time that I can never get back.  Although I know Moms everywhere know how I feel, it is like this lump in my throat that doesn’t want to go away.   As a Mom we always want our children to be small to where we can always cuddle them and protect them.  It is getting more and more difficult as now my baby boy is huge and is as tall as I am.  The one consolation is that every morning and night, I get hugs from him and always, always, “Love you Mom!”  Those hugs and words are priceless treasures, and he has been my treasure box gifted to me by my Lord.
