10 Years Ago Today



Wow. My oldest son, my baby boy - Lane - turns 10 years old today. It seems like he was just born last week. What is it about your first born that is just...well... a little different somehow. Lane is an amazing little boy and he will always have a special place in my heart. I am so blessed to have him as my son.

10 years ago today - I saw my first born child and my life changed (for the better) forever.

10 years ago today - I discovered a love that I didn't know existed

10 years ago today - I realized that I loved someone else more than I loved myself

10 years ago today - I was given a gift from God that I will treasure forever

10 years ago today - I looked into his eyes and knew that I would do whatever it took to take care of him

10 years ago today - I discovered maternal instinct and true, unconditional love

10 years ago today - Lane and I started a journey together that has not always been easy, but taught us that we always had (and always will have) each other

10 years ago today - my heart skipped a beat and my eyes filled with tears when a nurse handed my beautiful son to me

10 years ago today - I fell totally and completely in love with my oldest son, Lane.

Happy happy birthday to you Lane. You are so very lucky God gave you the mom he did. She's a beautiful person inside and out and loves you with every bit of her being. Lesley, I know it hasn't been an easy road for you at all, but you certainly have tried to make the best out of things for you and your children. You have done a great job in my eyes. These kids and you both should feel so blessed to have each other. I'm very proud of you.

Lane I hope you have a fun birthday today. I can't believe you're 10 already! Seems like yesterday when your mom was talking about things when you were a baby.
