15 Candles

On this day fifteen years ago, this little boy made me a mother.

(Obviously, I wasn't in possession of the best camera back then!)

Wow! I look so young! And he looks so jaundiced!

These fifteen years have flown by in a few beats of my heart.  Through all the ages and stages, Kevin holds tight to a special place in my soul.  It’s something I can’t quite put into words . . . maybe it’s because he’s my firstborn and I wanted him so much and waited for him for so long.  Maybe it’s because he and I had a life together before anyone else came along.  Maybe it’s because he’s just a really great kid who fills me with pride and admiration at the person he is and the young man he’s growing into.

Happy Birthday, Kevin.
