Oh sweet boy, how is it that you are seven (!) years old today. It seems like only yesterday that I held you for the first time, looked into those beautiful brown eyes and felt my heart melt. There are no words to fully explain how you have changed my life. The last seven years have been the most amazing ride, and along the way I have become a better person, because of you.
I am so honoured to be your mama, to hold your hand, to guide you, to walk with you, to laugh and cry with you, to witness the unfolding of the unique and beautiful person you are. It is a pleasure to spend my days with you learning, growing and changing, together. There have been moments over the last few weeks when I have quietly sat back and observed you, and I have seen the young man you will soon become. A caring, sensitive, joyful, stubborn, curious young man who will continue to challenge me, make me question myself, and force me to step up and be the mother you need me to be.
As we celebrate you today, I promise not to look back with regret at how fast time has gone, instead I will offer gratitude to you for making this journey the most amazing one I have ever taken. You are an amazing little man, and I can't wait to see where your next trip around the sun is going to take you.
I love you.
