No Longer A Boy, Now You Are A Man!

3 years ago

I find it so hard to comprehend that today you are no longer a boy, now you are a man!


Was it really twenty one years ago today,

That my life was changed in such a dramatic way!

When I first looked into your sweet, little, face,

I knew that you were a true gift of His Grace!

As you grew, so did the bond that we share,

one of respect, love, honor, and care!

Through childhood, adolescence, and teenage years, 

Guiding you with lessons from life's happiness and tears.

Instilling values and morals, as part of your core.

Teaching you to view love, honor, compassion, and hard work as more than a chore.

Knowing that those lessons have stuck in your heart,

Watching as you reach the next phase of your life's journey gives me a start!

You are an amazing friend, son, and big brother,

I love you and am proud to be your mother!

You will always have my strength and support, along with my love, too.

Wishing you only happiness and all of your dreams to come true!

I will always worry about you as only a mother can,

but today you are no longer a boy, now you are a man!


Happy birthday to you my sweet baby boy! I love you with all of my heart; I am so proud of the man you have become!
