I cannot even begin to tell you how excited my heart Is today. My children have been the light of my heart since the day they came into the world and always will be. And now today, my daughter will get to witness the joy of their own child being born. I was remembering back 26 years ago, May 19, 1990. I remember how anxious I was about giving birth, I was a hot mess. But the minute she came and they laid her on my chest, all my pain was gone and joy took over. I remember my seven-year-old little boy asking “why do we have to do this on my birthday, can the doctor put her back in there for a while.” It was so cute, but the minute he laid eyes on her and she grasped his finger, he loved her to death. Yes, she came on my son’s birthday May 19, 1983 I remember celebrating his birthday a week early since my due date was May 19th. My heart is just full of joy, happiness, and now a love for new baby Kyler than you can ever imagine. If I would have only seen then, the short amount of time I would have had with them before they were grown and out on their own, I would have done a lot of things differently. From a mom who has caused a broken mess throughout a lot of my past, I lost some of the most precious years of my children’s lives, although I was there, I wasn’t there, if that makes sense. Seize every minute with your children. Make them the most important thing in your life. No matter which path they have chosen in life, it may not be what you had picked out for them, but love them anyway. Support them no matter what, and realize that God has extended grace to us over and over and over again, it’s time to extend that same grace on to our children and love them unconditionally like never before. I have been home in the bed all week sick with the flu and it just makes me sick that I am not able to be there for his birth. But my baby girl knows, her mommy loves her, supports her, and that my heart is right there beating next to hers today. We will see him just as soon as I get well.
Welcome to this world today Baby Kyler
We love you,
