Ten Years Ago Today

Ten years ago today I felt nervous, scared and excited. Ten years ago today I found out what it meant to love someone more than life. Ten years ago today I met my first born son. Ten years ago today I became a Mommy.

Over the last ten years I've spent countless hours talking with you, playing with you, watching you grow and learn and become who you are. I am so proud and amazed at the person you are. You are kind, loyal, compassionate, smart, funny, creative and so much more. I never knew I could love this much, this deeply. I also never knew that along with the immense joy of watching you grow, there would be so much sadness in knowing how much time has gone by and realizing how little time you have left as my little boy.

Happy 10th Birthday, Jacob. You'll never be a single digit again... I love you more than words can ever express, deeper than the oceans, bigger than the sky.


  1. Sweet Jacob! I hope you all had a wonderful day yesterday. He is such a great boy. You are an awesome mom!


  2. Well that was a tear jerker. Happy birthday Jacob and well done mommy!
