What can a mom say, when her baby boy turns 21?
Music comes to my mind.... I think of Savage Garden singing, "I loved you before I met you, I think I dreamed you into life".... I think of Blake Shelton singing, "I don't care if you're 80, you'll always be my baby". I think of you standing beside me in a Chapel at Lackland, AFB listening to the song by Mark Schultz, "Letters From War" and how you cheered when we sang the words, "He said "mom I'm following orders. From all of your letters. And I've come home again"... John, your mom cried.
Twenty-one years ago, I met you, my son. I remember waking that morning, knowing you would enter my world. We went clear across county for your sister's soccer game...and there I went into labor.
At 6:10 on 6/10 you entered my world. My baby. My littlest guy with the smiling eyes.
It matters not the roads you travel, forever you are in your mom's heart. I love you so much more than I could ever even try to attempt with words.
You are my baby.
I love you so!
Happy Birthday, John!
