Having 2 birthdays so close together is interesting in our house. The birthday celebration for our 7 year old has come and gone (almost). He is tucked in bed sleeping off his sugar crash. The house is quiet once again but I am grateful. I am grateful that he has such a zest for life. I am grateful that he laughs at almost everything. I am grateful that he is not yet old enough to avoid hugs from me. I am grateful that he was willing to share his day with karate. I am grateful that we got to celebrate his special day with a few extra friends. I am grateful that he still likes having stories read at night. I am grateful that he is mine, no matter how old he gets or where he goes in life, he is mine. Happy birthday bud!! I am so grateful for you. Love you!!
