To My Sweet Boy,
You are a light in my life.
Your smiles brighten our days. I can't get enough of those deep dimples and dark chocolate eyes. I cherish how you easily flash a big bright smile that can shine a light on even the darkest days. I want to hold you in my arms and sear these days into my memory.
I love your joyfulness in the simple things. You easily find simple pleasures in your days and delve into them wholeheartedly. I secretly watch you when you play and am amazed at your imagination. You can take two little toys and make a whole exciting adventure.
Every day you share with me words of love and affirmation. Not a day goes by that you haven't told me that I am the best mom you could ever have. Even on the days when I know I haven't even come close to earning that title, you still shower me with your love and affection. Oh sweet little one, I can learn so much from your unconditional love.
So, today on your 8th birthday, I give you my love. Pure and simple. You sweet boy are my sunshine and fill me with a joy that words can't begin to describe.
I love you!
