My only son, my oldest child is E-L-E-V-E-N today.  He just keeps growing!!

The days are sometimes long but the years are lightening fast.  He has challenged me in ways his sisters haven’t.  I finally understand what my mother once told me- that she learned more from us {her children} than she thinks we learned from her.  I have grown so much as a person from raising this kid.

We had a heart to heart awhile ago where I told him that it is he who made me a mother.  Everywhere he goes, now and later, a little piece of me goes with him. He grew from me, we are a part of each other, and that I love him more than everything.
