My baby boy is 8

It is just so hard to believe that this much time has slipped by! I have had the absolute privilege of being mama to this remarkable child for eight whole years. One of our computers is set to display pictures we've saved on it for the screen saver. Many of C's baby pictures and toddler pictures are on there. His sweet, smiling face appears on the screen and tugs at my heart. Truly, madly, deeply he has made me want to be a better person, probably more than any other person on this earth. Not a day escapes that I do not marvel at his compassion and curiosity. Almost daily he picks me wildflowers in our backyard. Today he brought in some sort of insect egg off a leaf out there. I am so incredibly blessed. Thank you, Lord, for allowing me to raise this child. Thank you.
