    ~for my one & only ~

    when I think about it
    honestly...
    he is the one

    unique, from conception
    & such an unexpected
    gift

    everyone is special
    singular
    beautiful

    but he changed me
    from the inside
    forever

    when I first held him
    in my arms

    when his eyes,
    large & beautiful,
    first searched my
    face, my heart opened
    and took him whole

    before
    the beginning
    our story was written
    in the Book of Life...

    before I could express
    myself with words
    our love was sealed

    when I recall how
    I took measures to shield
    myself from ever
    knowing him....

    I pause & tremble
    at what I would have
    missed

    for now I cannot imagine
    life without him

    yes, I have had others

    and it is not his gender
    that separates him
    so specially from
    his sisters

    all are unique

    beautiful

    irreplaceable ones


    but from the moment
    I held him in my arms
    I felt a surge that
    cannot be described
    with mere language

    & I knew he
    was the manifestation
    of a covenant made
    long before my
    foreparents existed...

    the answer to someone's
    earnest prayer

    & in spite of my
    ignorance, my
    arrogance and
    even my ungratefulness

    I am honored
    with the privilege
    to nurture the one
    whose very life
    has enriched my own
    for 10 short years...

    happy birthday Jonathan!

    :heart:

    always
    mom
