Here we are again, with zero complaints from me.
Another year of blessings, another year of enjoying being Mom to an amazingly handsome, smart, funny and incredibly frustrating teenage boy.
I am so very, very blessed and not a day passes that I am not keenly aware of how very fortunate I am.
Another year to remind me to cherish - every second of every day.
I am so honored to be Julien's Mom and I am so proud of his ability to love with his whole heart and to be proud of his little sister, even when society makes it hard on him.
He has a beautiful gift of being able to love and protect without fear and judgement.
15 years has passed.
Yet it truly seems like just yesterday that I held him for the very first time.
We are a rare breed of refinement.
Julien didn't ask for much.
He just wanted dinner and cake at home with just family.
He was very specific on his choice of cakes, and I was more than happy to oblige - YUM!
That deterred...no one.
Before opening the card, Julien asked me if I was making fat jokes on his birthday.
I have a very whacked out sense of humor, and couldn't pass up the card.
I thank God for the gift of Motherhood and for my precious Baby Boy.
