It’s quite a special day we are celebrating while camping today as a family.
|Me, Hunter and Dana Elizabeth (our friend often referred to as a sister) on Hunter’s 2nd birthday
12 years ago this how we celebrated our son turning 2, a donut with two candles. Today he’ll need a full meal and has requested for me to make A LOT of food.
He’s a hungry boy as our teenager turns 14 years old.
He doesn’t know that I’ll cook for him every day to make him happy. After all, he changed my life forever. His perfect arrival (after an emergency c-section) into this world was pivotal moment in a treacherous time in my life. His perfectness was burned into my mind and changed my entire outlook on life. It impacted me greater than any other single life event to date and made me stronger than I knew I could be. Today, he’s loyal. He’s hilariously witty. He’s a sports data nerd. He forgets shoes. He strongly dislikes making his bed. He loves his family and has a strong faith. He is passionate and energetic on all topics and hobbies he loves which doesn’t include mowing the lawn or emptying the dishwasher. He’ll shoot baskets in the barn all hours of the day.
Today all I can think is thank you for making me a mom, Hunter.
We love you. Happy Birthday.
