My son, my beautiful, gorgeous son,
The little man of God which heaven gifted me with,
You are an angel to which I feel entrusted.
From conception you have been an answer to prayer.
How much I wanted you and for how long
Before you actually came along, you will never know.
Each morning that I awaken I thank God for you.
You put up with so much,
From school taking up my time,
To homework stealing ours,
And all the last minute cancellations.
You are so loving and understanding for a child so young.
You are wise and forgiving in the ways God allows for you to be.
You’ve been such a man at times when you’ve seen me experience heartbreak.
The little arms that have always comforted me,
Do so even now with such patient words.
God gives a lot of people children.
But I thank Him for sharing with me one of His most precious.
You carry the love of Christ in your heart.
