Jonah Keenan-Gallagher. I don’t even know how to begin to write a birthday tribute post about this child. I guess the best way to put it is like this: Jonah has one of the most beautifully unique personalities I have ever come across in my entire life. I am, honest to God, not just saying that because he’s my child. I really have just never met anyone with quite his list of ingredients. Sometimes I think of my kids as little recipes, full of all different ingredients. They all share some of the ingredients, but all have some of their own flavors unique just to them...Ingredient #2: Compassion & Care...This is truly one of my favorite things about this child. These are characteristics that are so hard to really find in someone, but when you see it you just wish the world had more of it. I have really never met someone who genuinely I have really never met someone who genuinely cares about the everyday underdog more than Jonah. By that I just mean he really seeks out the kid in the corner, the family member who’s struggling, the person under fire in the media, and anyone who just seems to be getting left behind…those are the people who Jonah focuses his attention and love on. He is so perceptive, and so much the type of person who “feels other people’s pain”. We’ve actually had times over the last few years when he does this to a fault. He worries, he is overthinks things, and he can have an insanely guilty conscience…all very much like a parent who you could almost loves their children too much...So, here’s to one of my greatest, most successful recipes: Jonah Keenan-Gallagher, at the awkward age of 13 years old today. I love this boy more every single day I see his little face. I truly do. And, I can only hope to be more like him as time goes on because he is genuinely one of the most incredible, most unique, most genuine people I could ever dream of being connected to.
Happy birthday, baby.
I am so lucky to be your Mommy.
