Happy Birthday Goalielocks! Today you’re 14 years old and I cannot believe how quickly time has flown by. You’re a good egg and the perfect panacea to my bad days. As you grow older, may your heart stay big and loving and may your mind stay open and curious. Never stop challenging old assumptions or challenging yourself to be better, smarter and stronger than you are today.
“I never want this to go unsaid,
So here in this poem is for it to be said.
There are no words to express how much you mean to me,
A son like you, I thought could never be.
Because the day you were born, I just knew,
God sent me a blessing- and that was you.
For this I thank Him every day.
You are the true definition of a son, in every way.
It is because of you that my life has meaning.
Becoming a mom has shown me a new sense of being.
I want you to know that you were the purpose of my life,
Out of everything I did- it was you that I did right.
Always remember that I know how much you care,
I can tell by the relationship that we share.
For a son like you there could be no other,
And whether we are together or apart,
Please do not ever forget-
You will always have a piece of my heart.”
