Son

Son

You are the embers that warm my heart.  You are my treasure and the core of my happiness. You are my son and I am your mother.

You came into this world and completed our family.  I enjoyed watching the world through the wonder in your eyes.  I learned that boys could be both sensitive and strong by watching you handle life’s challenges.  Once I was your protector and now you are mine.

I love our discussions and how we can talk about everything and anything.  You are my student, my friend, and my legacy.  I hope you will carry fond memories of your childhood wherever you go in this life.  And as I’ve told you a million times, always remember that wherever your life does lead, you take my heart with you.  If anything should happen to you, my heart would be broken.

I want you to know that having you as my son has been a gift, a privilege, and an honor.
