Four Years Old

6 August 2011

Four years ago tonight, I was doing a lot of nesting…

Little did I know that that night I would experience the most profound, empowering, and life-changing event of my whole life.  Or that I was about to meet someone that I would love more than life itself, who would teach me the true meaning of total, self-sacrificing, unconditional love.  I thought I knew all these things before he came along, I really did.  Boy, did I not know what I was missing!

Peer and Mommy

A new woman was also born that day.  I will never be the same.  Life is so sweet with PJ in the world and I marvel at the mystery of what’s to come.  He is such a free-thinker, a smart boy, and a loving, caring, well-meaning individual.  He is better than me in so, so many ways.  I know that God has big plans for him.  I believe he will be a great leader some day.  But no matter where you go in life, no matter what you do, you will always be my firstborn, my son.  And every year I will remember how you rocked my world when you entered it.
