My one and only Lucas,
Today you turned three and I am still walking around with my jaw on the floor honestly not knowing where the last 1095 days went. They were gone in a flash.
Some so much quicker than others.
The smiles, joy, hope, love and magic you have brought to my life are immeasurable and if I’m being honest, that goes for the frustration, worry and confusion too.
This motherhood thing is tricky and there are many days I feel as though I am learning as I go. Hopefully I’m getting a little better each day. Either way, I will forever be grateful to you for your trust and patience.
Lucas, you are my greatest accomplishment, my favorite person in the world (next to your dad, of course) and I am so blessed and honored to be your mother. Seeing the way your face lights up chasing bubbles in the backyard, taking that first bite of an ice cream cone and pedaling down the sidewalk on your new bicycle assures me know that life is beautiful, no matter what heartaches or struggles I may face.
Because of you, I channel my inner child and sing silly songs and make funny noises, all in an effort to hear you giggle.
Because of you, I am reminded daily how important it is to love and be loved.
Because of you, I want to be a better person, a great mom, lead by example and offer you every single opportunity I have had and more. I want to show you the world and watch how your make your way through it.
Because of you, my life is richer.
You know how to make me laugh when I want to cry.
You are a wonder to behold and witnessing you grow and change and explore is such a pleasure. Each day brings new adventures.
My heart and soul belong to you, Lucas and today I am wishing you the happiest of birthdays.
