In 2014, I met an amazing woman who stole my heart and soon after we were married. In the same moment that I became a wife, I also became a mother. My new son was 68” long with facial hair and a drivers license. 😳
Like most boys, he often comes home with scrapes and bruises. Anything that exceeds these minor injuries he shields from me, as he knows I pass out when I see blood. He’ll often patch himself up with electrical tape, shrug, giggle, and go on with his day.
It’s instinctive to protect him from any and all harm, to put him in a bubble. We strive daily to give him the tools to make his way in a world that isn’t always kind or easy, and often times hurtful. It’s been challenging, but necessary, to take off the training wheels. 🚲
In four years, our little man has grown up to be quite the young adult. He has the biggest, most generous and loving heart. He’s quick to lend a helping hand to neighbors and strangers alike. He’s kind to all people and animals.
He has known pain and he has suffered loss, but he has worked diligently to overcome his challenges and obstacles. He has learned that circumstances do not define him, but how he reacts and learns from his experiences do.
We cherish his laughter. We welcome the occasional water and egg fights in the kitchen. We bought our new flooring specifically to withstand these special moments. He is often heard whistling with the parrots or playing the the pups. He has rescued wayward turtles and protected baby bunnies. 🐰
Kris, every moment of every day, I am thankful and grateful for your loving me, for being my wife, and for giving me the gift of Hunter as a son. Thank you for sharing your Mother’s Day with me.
Forever and always!! ❤️💕😉
