"What I need to live, has been given to me by the earth. Why I need to live,has been given to me by you."
On April 4, 2000, I gave birth to my very own Valentine, Christian. On that day, he became the love of my life and has continued to be, to this day. About 4 years ago, we were driving home from my birthday dinner when out of the blue he said, "Mommy, do you realize that when I was in your belly that both of our hearts were in you at the same time?" I almost ran off the road at his very deep and profound thought, to which I replied, "No, Christian, I did not!" He looked at me with those beautiful brown eyes and said, "I think that is why we are best friends." It was a moment I will never forget. So today, on this day of love, I would like to share an open Valentine to my son-shine.
My precious baby boy,
How did I ever get so lucky? What did I ever do to deserve the love of such an amazingly beautiful soul? I often times feel unworthy of your presence, but soon realize that I was placed on this earth to be your Mommy. I promise to do everything in my power to get well and make sure I will have lots and lots of days with you.
Thank you for being my best friend and loving me even when I didn't love myself very much. I owe you the world and fully intend to find someway in my power to get it for you! Please keep the faith and trust that God will continue to bless us and answer our prayers.Happy Valentine's Day, my forever heart.
I love you Pumpkin!
Your most grateful Mommy
