This morning while you were waiting for the school bus you looked at me and said…….. You have a big belly. Are you going to have a baby? I want a baby sister. This occurred all in the same sentence. I told you……No I am not going to have another baby and that the last baby in there was you. Sure there are times when I wish I could have had a baby sister for you. But the doors to having babies were shut the day you were born. I remember my doctor asking me if I was sure I wanted the procedure done. I knew that to have more babies would be risky for my health. So you my son are my precious fourth son. Each day with you brings new joys and surprises. I am so glad you are who you are. Today was one of those moments in which I remember that you have blessed me with an endless treasure…….your love for me.

My dearest youngest son,

       Both yesterday and today you reminded me that you need to wear gym shoes to school. Today I told you twice to put on your shoes. Instead you didn’t listen to me. I watched you jump out in the middle of the yard with your boots on. I was too tired to think. When the school bus came, I noticed you had your boots on. I told you…..Oh well I told you to put your shoes on twice. The look on your face was of pure disappointment. I watched you go back to your seat. I ran into the house and got your shoes just as the school bus was about to pull away. She opened the door for me and we met on the steps…… Now you have your shoes my son. I am so proud of you. For today you will jump for a child who cannot jump. Today you will jump for a child with heart disease. Today I watched you jump in the snow. I can’t help but think about the child that can’t jump in the snow. The one who’s too sick. The one who’s heart beats with cardiovascular disease. I feel proud that you my son are doing something for another little one. Today I watched you grow up a little more. Through your little part in school today, I hope that another child will grow up healthy with a stronger heart free of disease.

I have a new goal in my life. I want to try every different flavor of cheesecake at the local cheesecake store. At last count it was over 42 different flavors. Last night I tried death by chocolate and my youngest son had a big delicious brownie. Sure I could have made him one but he went to the store with one purpose in mind……..Marbles. There is a bowl of marbles in the store that he likes to play with. Last night I had an idea that he could barter with the owner of the store for the marbles he so desires. I watched my son hold a homemade m&m cookie behind his back. He ran to the owner and said “I want some marbles.” The owner accepted is offer and my son ran to the bowl filled with marbles. Life is like a bowl of marbles. Sometimes smooth. Sometimes hard. Sometimes you loose your marbles. When that happens then you have to have a little death by chocolate cheesecake. It awakens your taste buds to the reality of living in the moment of pure chocolate bliss. I’d have to say that I was in my own chocolate heaven last night.

Last year while shopping at a local grocery store, I learned an important lesson in life. I was sitting in the store entrance with my youngest son. We were waiting for my mother to finish grocery shopping. My youngest son was in the truck shaped grocery cart. An elderly woman was talking to him about his driving abilities. She soon left and then I saw my mother. We left the store only to see the elderly woman talking to a Salvation Army bell ringer. I overheard her say this to the bell ringer…….The greatest gift of Christmas is love. Yes, I would have to agree with that statement. Especially now when times are tough. The statement reminds me that it was a mother’s gift of her son to the world. A mother’s gift of undying love. Her son, Our Savior, has given me many gifts. One of which is knowing that I am a child of God. I am number one in his eyes. Just like many of his children. We have a responsibility to spread God’s love to those in need. There are many people who do not realize the true impact that God can bring into their lives. God is love. This holiday season please spread some love to those who need it. Remember that the greatest gift of Christmas is love.

When you were not looking, I saw you standing there. I wanted to go up to to you. I wanted to say hello. I saw you staring off into space. I wondered what were you thinking about. Before you left me, you hugged me. I keep it close to my heart…..Until we meet again. I want to write you a love letter every day on your birthday. I want you to know how much I love you and miss you when you are not with me. I miss feeling you wrap your arms around my neck. I miss you my precious little one. I love you forever my youngest son.
