There is more to a boy....

 “There is more to a boy than what his mother sees.  There is more to a boy then what his father dreams.  Inside every boy lies a heart that beats.  And sometimes it screams, refusing to take defeat.  And sometimes his father’s dreams aren’t big enough, and sometime his mother’s vision isn’t long enough.  And sometimes the boy has to dream his own dreams and break through the clouds with his own sunbeams.”
-Ben Behuni

Last night I went to bed thinking about the fact that my boy will be preparing for his 18th birthday next year at this time.  I wonder how in the world did this happen so fast.  He came into my life early, we were unprepared for his preemie body but we walked by faith as they placed his tiny three-pound body into my arms, only after watching him from a distance for the first three days of his life. 

 How did my tiny little miracle out grow me?  It seems like only yesterday I was changing his diapers, chasing him around the house, singing him to sleep, walking him to school, answering his questions about the moon. Now that boy who once was fighting for life is now fully living his life.  He went from diapers and bottle to legos and trucks.  He graduated to writing, cameras, and creating.  He is a man who does not follow the crowd or conform to this world. 

He has a gentle faith that believes in the best of all and is willing to defend the weak.  He is a teacher a learner and one who loves deeply.  How did this happen?  One day at a time, one moment at a time, my tiny little boy grew into a man.

From the moment, I held you I knew God gave you to me to remind me not to take life to seriously.  Keep being you, the world is a better place because you are in it.
