Dec 3: Someone I Love

on 3 December, 2015

december-photo-list SmallToday’s post is easy: someone I love.

From the time that I decided that I did want to become a mother, I have loved that boy. I know, I didn’t know if he would be a boy and there were times when I truly did not know if he would be born at all!

For those of you who haven’t heard this story (and apologies to those that have), the birth of my son was the culmination of five years of infertility treatments; an endless stream of tears, frustration and prayers and a serious impact on my marriage. It was also, as far as I can account, about the cost of a nice house in California (or a really really nice house in Missouri) and an untold amount of time, energy and blood, sweat and tears. Literally: Blood. Sweat. Tears.

And I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the entire world!

But from the point that I knew that I would success with the pregnancy and until now, it has been a completely, wonderfully, loved fill ride. Not only do I love that kid, but I am in love with him. I don’t know if every mother feels the way I do, I only know how much he means to me. He is – and always has been – a great, wonderful kid and now he has grown into the most handsome, talented, charismatic, charming, polite and thoughtful young man. I have never heard “I hate you” or “I wished I’d never been born” and he is always ready to help and lend me a hand. He would hate that I am saying all of this, some more than others. He still tells me he loves me and I get a “you’re the best mom ever” often. I still get kisses and big bear hugs and occasionally I will even still get snuggling from him. He is fun to be with and we love most of the same music and we have many interests in common. He has a crazy sense of humor and a laid back style, and is willing to jump in the car with me for crazy, last minute adventures.

Okay, I suspect that y’all are about to gag from the syrupy mush that I am writing, so I will just post today’s photo and let you off the hook.
