My oldest son, Eli, turns 13 today! I’m a little sad that I can’t be with him. But I know that he is having a blast with Granny, Aunt Christy, Aunt Angie, and friends.
Eli, I just want to tell that I knew from the time I was pretty young that I wanted to be a mother. I dreamed about that day for years, and you were the first answer to that dream. Yyou cannot imagine how much joy you have brought to my life. Dad and I are so proud of the smart, sensitive, funny, tender-hearted man you are becoming. We love you and miss you!
