That he is 20 years old today

Unbelievable, what a blessing, what a wonderful, awesome man this child has become, that he is 20 years old today. I love his smile, his laughter, his gentleness with the "awesome 5 guys", his dog, how interesting he is. How I am able to love this person’s entire being. That he is 20 years old today. How blessed I have been to have him in my life, the honor of being his mom. That he is 20 years old today. All the memories that flash by when I look upon his face. The brief glimpse of that little boy that used to smile up at me, arms outstretched to hold him. The same grin is there that came as his dad’s key was heard in the lock. The blond curly hair and huge eyes, darker now yet still curly. That he is 20 years old today. All these thoughts flew through my mind watching him across the table today as we celebrated his day.

Lord, it tears my heart how quickly time has passed, is passing. The moments we shared to create treasured memories. The moments, hours, days that were lost in wasted time. How amazing it is to love someone so much that without hesitation, I would give my life for him. It is so unreal that 20 years have actually passed.

In just a moment - it really happens.

I pray that he will find what it is he wants in this life. I am so thankful that he has a relationship with you, to guide him, protect him, to share with. I pray that he will find the woman you have made for him, to share his life, to bring up a family, to serve you-together. I pray that he will always have a strong and close relationship with Nichalas. That their children too will know and be close in years to come. That Curt and I have started the beginning of all future generations to know you.

I thank you Father for blessing me so very much. For the gift of being Adam’s mom.
