Just a boy.

Rugged around the edges, he’s equal parts soft-hearted and muddy shoes.

He wants to know everything about archeology, the human body and dirt bikes.

He plays outside, swims and partakes in ornery shenanigans.

Bearing the sweetest heart, he cries easily and speaks warm stories to melt my heart.

Each day I’m reminded how extraordinary he is; bringing a light into my life, he is who made me a mom.

I am forever grateful for the boy he is.  It’s not my doing, yet that of who he was created to be.

He’s learning the values of life.  He can be a handful at times, like all children, yet every moment with this boy reminds me that he’s the most caring, tender and handsome boy ever made… inside and out.
