Forever My Baby

21 years ago today
a sweet wee soul entered my life
and brought to me a sense of
love
that I had never experienced before.



Happy 21st Birthday Kurtis!

A young man that I am very proud of to call my son.

(And yes...you are still my baby...!)

Have a terrific day!

*****~*****~*****

Even though I have read this book
over two dozen times
I still can't get through it
without bawling my eyes out.



Indeed they are our babies forever.

Oh, happy birthday to Kurtis!!!

I know what you mean when you say, "a sense of love that I had never experienced before." Firstly, I was so surprised when I had my oldest that it was a baby. (Reality can sometimes be a shocker to me.;)) Then, quickly the understanding of why there was so much poetry written in praise of a mother's love dawned on me. It was quite something! =]

Happy birthday, Kurtis. We had chocolate brownie cake at school today for one of the secretaries. And my friend's daughter, Renee, turned 8 today. I gave her a kitty bank to paint. One of my best friend's gave me Love You Forever when I had my first son. Boy oh boy did I cry every time I read it. :) Happy day to you! Tammy
