If ever a day should pass that I don't say I love you... May never a moment go by without you knowing that I do!
What is a son? A son is a warm spot in your heart and a smile on your lips. In the beginning, he is charminly innocent, puttin ghis complete trust in you. He comes to you for a hand to hold and for the security only your arms can provide. He shares his tales of adventure and knows how proud you are of his discoveries and accomplishments. All his problems can be solved by a hug and a kiss from you, and the bond you share is so strong it is almost tangible...
Time passes, and your innocent little boy starts to test his limits. He lets go of your hand to race into the midst of life without thinking ahead or looking both ways. His problems have grown along with him, and he has learned that you can't always make his life better of kiss his troubles away. He spends much of his time away from you, and though you long for the closeness yo once shared, he chooses independence and privacy. Discoveries and accomplishments aren't as wasy to come by now, and sometimes he wonders about his worth.
But you know the worth of that young man. He is your past and your future. He is hopes and dreams that have made it through each and every disappointment and failure.
In your heart, your son is precious and treasured. Together, you struggle through the years trying to find the right amount of independence for each new state of his life, until finally, you have to learn to let him go.
Now you put your trust in him, leaving that son whom you hold so dear totally in his own care. You hop that he always remembers that you have a hand for him to hold and arms to provide comfort or support. Most of all, you hope that he believes in himself as much as you believe in him, and that he knows how much you love him. By Barbara Cage

Graduation is Fast Approaching.. what will I do

So, graduation is less than two days away and all I can think is what am I going to do with out my Daniel? He is my first born, my best friend, my heart and soul.... and always my "little Man". The last few years have been wonderful.. with the exception of a few months of his sophomore year when he had to test his independence.. but he learned from that. THANK GOD!!!! His last year of high school has been a blast to go through with him... he has such a great group of friends and has such respect for his family.. I am truly a proud momma. I couldn't ask for a better kid.. In just two short days, he will graduate high school and begin his journey into Adult life... and I will be there, standing by him and helping him every step of the way!
