December 9, 2011
Six years ago today, you came into my world. Prior to your arrival, I had many roles. I was a daughter, a sister, a cousin, an aunt and a friend. When you arrived on that very cold December – it was 17 degrees when we were driving to the hospital – I finally became a mom. And not just any mom, but your mom. I can hardly believe how fast the time has gone by. Six years, in a flash.
I remember the moment I saw you. And still today, when I look at you, you still look like you did the day you were born. Maybe that is just part of being a mom. Always seeing your kids with that purity and innocence and extraordinary love that comes at birth.
I love your sweet Sean smile. I love how loyal you are. I love your passion for sports, especially baseball. I love all the little things that make you so special. I love how much you love your family, especially your sister and dad. You are a gift in the truest sense of the word and I am grateful for the gift of being your mom.
Happy Birthday Sean Michael. I love you always. I have enjoyed the ride!
