I have a 15 year old son named Patrick Campbell. He is a handsome YOUNG MAN with a big smile and the prettiest brown eyes I have ever seen. I love him for so many reasons. Mostly because He came into my life at a time when I was able to stay home and be a full-time mom. What a blessing it was back then.
I was on Active duty when I had my first son Elijah and with my daughter Lyric I was trying to work and go back to school. I had to pray about it. I needed God's direction on my decisions back then. I decided to be as open-minded as possible with this new baby. So I stepped out of my comfort zone and I did everything different with him. I decided to do Lamaze, birthing classes, I had a mid-wife and I decided that I would breast feed. I came out of my shell with him and did a lot of FIRSTS.
I miss Patrick the baby, but Patrick the 15 year old is a comedian, a perfectionist, a realist and a winner in EVERY GAME we play as a family. No matter the game, he ALWAYS wins. I AM SERIOUS (smile)
I love you my sweet baby boy Patrick.
As he has grown and developed I have realized that our children live their lives in unique phases. When one ends, another phase begins. My baby will soon be in seventh grade and he has already exhibited flashes of being a teenager. I know that change with our children is inevitable but I sure do miss having him hold on to my leg every time I went to the door.
I guess I just want to remind everyone that life is short and those moments, those special moments will be gone in an instant. I encourage you to love your children, spend time with your children and seize EVERY MOMENT.
