Birthday Wishes for The General

To the very special boy who made my dreams of being a Mommy come true, Happy, Happy Birthday dear boy. I love you more than words can express. The thought of life without you makes my heart hurt.

The things I love about my boy:

Although he is almost a teen, he still loves to play. Star Wars is one of his favorites.

He's not too cool to take silly pictures with Princess and I when we visit museums.

He's a talented artist, who is very passionate about his work.

He's a great big brother to Princess and Bubby. . . .always has been (above), always will be (below).

What young man puts on dorky shoe covers like this to take their little brother into a human kaleidoscope? And lets his mother take pictures, knowing full well the picture will end up on this blog for the whole world to see? The General. He marches to the beat of his own drum, which at times has been exasperating, but as a mature in my motherhood I treasure this trait. I love that he is comfortable in his skin, and very strong in his convictions. Most of all I love the beautiful heart he has for Christ.


  1. Happy Birthday to "the General"! Your kids are growing up so fast! He looks alot like your youngest brother, a very handsome boy!

  2. Happy Birthday General!

    This is such a beautiful post! There is nothing so beautiful as a mother who is totally in love with her child/ren. Bless you!

  3. I cannot believe that your son is 12! He is so handsome. And his wonderful personality is quite a testament to his parents :-)

  4. That Birthday Guy (cuz he's not so much a boy any more) is just way to cool for words!!
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY GENERAL!!!! We LOVE and MISS you! He is a very dedicated brother, and it shows not only in the photos you post but in the way he has risen to the call of the duty. You have every reason to be oh so proud of him.
