Thursday Thirteen - Happy Birthday Aaron

Two years ago, Aaron's arrival completely change my life. There hasn't been a single day in the past 730 days that remotely resembled pre-Aaron life. Life is harder and there I times when I say things like "I wish I could just have 24 hrs to myself" but, I don't really mean it. So today, on his 2nd Birthday, here are the:

13 Things I Wish For Aaron

1) Good health

2) Good emotional health

3) A childhood that will be full of happy family memories

4) Strong family ties

5) A circle of loyal friends

6) A demeanor that is polite, respectful and kind

7) A sense of humor and the ability to be an optimist

8) The drive to pursue any dream he may have

9) The stamina to complete any project he starts

10) The confidence to be true to himself

11) The strength to face and learn from failures

12) A balanced life (I wouldn't want him to be successful but a workaholic.)

13) Finally, I wish that he will always have a special place in his heart for me.

All the things a good parent would wish for their child. And with a loving mother like you, he'll be sure to have them.
