Happy Birthday Pierce

Four years ago today our lives changed forever. I was lying on my bed at 12:30 a.m. watching an episode of MASH when all of a sudden my water broke, 4 hours later at 5:10 a.m. my baby boy was lifted onto my belly and I was a mom. I had NO IDEA what was ahead of us and though some days I wondered what I had gotten myself into, a love affair began unlike any I had ever experienced. I thank God for my children every single day and for that day 4 years ago that our beautiful boy was born.
Dear Pierce,
* If I could give you perfect health I would
* If I could make sure you never got hurt I would
* If I could make sure your heart was never broken I would
* If I could give you daily happiness I would
* If I could give you unlimited opportunities I would
* If I could make sure you only had success I would
* If I could give you the WORLD I would...........but I cannot. What can I give you? I can give you unconditional love and share with you Jesus. My hearts desire is that you come to know Christ and He will be with you through all the joys and sorrows of this life. THAT IS the greatest gift I can share with you....... I love you with all of my heart!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY BOY!!

"I want to go back in"
