…who lights up my world; he really does. He enjoys the morning almost as much as I do, although he enjoys sleeping, too. I love how he takes his arm around my neck and pulls me back into the bed with him, making sure I know I’m loved first thing in the morning.
…who, like so many people, doesn’t always understand me, doesn’t always ‘get’ why my mood swings from time to time, why I have “no touchy” times or whole days, but who accepts me the way I am, makes sure he’s even more crazy than me, and doesn’t judge when I’m ‘odd’.
…with an incredible sense of humor. Not one to shy away from a good word play, an opportunity to make fun of himself, or just make everyone around him laugh with his silly faces and body contortions. I have a video of him doing a dance that I watch from time to time, just to laugh until I cry.
…with a soft and tender heart. Somehow he knows how to comfort others. Usually it’s just with a warm hug, he’s not big on words, just on ‘being there’.
…who’s noisy, messy, silly, can’t find things that are right in front of him, who loves pizza way more than is healthy, wants to cuddle even on the hottest summer days, he’s a bit of a show-off and way too daring for my delicate heart, but I love him all the same.
I know one day another woman will take you into her heart, and I’ll have to let you go, but regardless of where you go or what you do, you’ll forever be in my heart, you will forever be my son.
Happy Birthday, Jordan!
