What’s Left?Apr 15th, 2010 | By admin | Category: Opinion
I’m writing this on Tuesday night - as usual - and tomorrow is my only son’s birthday. He will be 39. He said he wanted to just drop that age back by10 years. I said that would be fine because I wouldn’t mind dropping mine back 10 years. But my purpose in writing about my son is to explain how I feel about being a mom. I never thought, before I had a son, that it would be the most important thing I ever did in my life. Having a child, especially one as good as my son, Christian. I’m not one of these parents that think their child can do no wrong, but my son is just basically a good person. He is hard to get to know because he is somewhat reserved, but once you get to know him you will find that he has a very funny sense of humor and is extremely intelligent. He is constantly amazing me with observations he has about life. He is a sci-fi fan but has trouble watching any of those movies because he can’t help but critique the factual aspect of the movie. (I didn’t know sci-fi shows were based on fact???) Anyway, mothers, you know what I am saying. You never had any idea that when you had your child that you could love someone so much and know that no matter what you achieved in your lifetime, having that child (or children) would be the greatest achievement in your life. It really has been a blessing beyond my dreams. I hope that you take the time to really appreciate your child or children. They are so special no matter what their age!
Happy 39th (29th) Birthday, Christian!! I love you!
