My 16 yr old son, Joshua gave my husband and I the card he bought us for Valentine's Day. He wrote in that card; he wrote from his heart; HE touched mine!
Josh has a temper, a mouth, an argumentative persona... he also has a heart filled with love, a warmth, and an outstanding abundance of adoration for his family!
He is our youngest child... I feel as if he has been cheated. Josh got stuck with the "older" parents, the parents who cannot keep up with him and many things HE loves to do... I hate not being the strong mom like I was in my "younger days"; or the mom who definitely would have given him a run for his money. I know his dad feels the same.
But, Josh does not yet understand... it is because of HIM I remain the mom I am! He sets my heart ablaze with his imagination, his adoration, his ability to SEE things beyond what they are... Josh is true to himself and I treasure that in him. He is my Valentine every day of the year. I want him to know just THAT! That without Josh, his mom would NOT be the same person she is today.
I love all my children... Heather, Danny, and Josh. To them I dedicate this special I LOVE YOU!
For my husband... ahem... I have other ideas!
