Happy Birthday...

Dear Sweet Jayden,

Jayden Michael, you’re mommy is a mess. But thank you for entering my mess anyway. I love you. I cannot believe that you are one. Jayden, you are the one thing I want most in the world that I had NO IDEA I wanted and yet I would NEVER want to live without. I love you, son. Thank you for tolerating all of my hugs and my seemingly obsessive-compulsive kissing. (and the head-lock "hugs" from your sister) And thank you for all the giggles and smiles you share so freely. I can’t imagine my life without you, my other favorite man in the entire world. I cannot wait to see who you become, how you process the world, and what God does in and through your life. I will give myself to being the best mommy I can be, and I will trust that God will fill in the gaps where I fall incredibly short. I will pray you through the hard and the good. And I will always be here, ready to listen and throw things whenever we need to. I love you. I can't say it enough.
Thank you for changing my life. Thank you for reminding me of what's really important. Thank you for giggling at my silly songs. And thank you for sharing your life with me.
