Even as I wish, I know. I know that I trust the road God has lead us down. I trust that the experiences I have had in the last 10 years have not been wasted. I trust that I have grown. I trust that I have a stronger faith. I trust that every struggle has been a stepping stone in the path God wants for me. And because I trust, I can be thankful.
So, happy birthday son. You are wanting for nothing. You are whole and healthy. You are son who is missed. You are a brother, who has given your sisters a connection to heaven. I thank God for the opportunity to be your mother....
"I will lift up my eyes to the hills -
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip-
he who watches over you will not slumber."
