I can’t believe you are 1! Has it really been 1 year since I gave birth to you? Where has time gone? I still remember the first time I held you in my arms. You were so tiny and fragile. I could not keep my eyes off you for days. I didn’t sleep when I should because all I want is to stare at you, in awe of what a miraculous work the Lord has done!
You have taught me so much this past year. Never would I know I would become the person I am today. I have learn to be patient, to be gentle, to be strong physically even without sleep, to be kind, to take each day at a time, to laugh when I can’t and to smile when I cry. I am sure you will continue to teach me even more this coming year.
I want you to know that I love you. I love your smile, your laughter and everything about you makes me go crazy! Do you know that I scroll through photos and videos of you multiple times a day when I’m at work? I miss you the second I leave home. I feel like I’ve missed some parts of your life this first year and I’m sorry. Sorry for not being there long enough and for being cranky at times. I promise I will make it up to you very soon. Next month onwards, I will have more time with you every day! I am looking forward to being free from full time work and just spending more time with you. Even if it is for a few hours, it is very precious. I want to be there for you and do fun activities together. I hope that you feel the same and you will want to be with me too.
This birthday, I pray that God will protect you and guide you; that you will find favor in Him and the people you meet. I want you to know that God is always with you. Never keep your eyes off Him and don’t ever forget that He loves you.
Happy Birthday, Son.
