For the Love {January} A Love Evolving ~ San Antonio Teen Photos

To my Zachary…

You are becoming less little boy and more grown man as each day passes. I am so proud of you and look forward to the days ahead, but I cannot lie…these days have come and gone too fast…and this mother’s heart aches just a little for that boy I held in my lap.

I remember bringing you home from the hospital and the sweet smell of your new skin…

Your first nights’ sleeping next to my bed…watching every breath you took…my heart was so full…

First smiles and giggles….you were always so happy…{and still are}…

We have faced dark days, just you and me, and felt the sweet exuberance of the sun shining once more…{only God could have known how much I would need you}

Your giggles and silliness have filled my life with love and light…

There have been tractor rides and egg collecting on Grandpa’s farm…

Trees to climb and bikes to peddle…and John Deere tractors to ride at State Fair’s…

Trips through the drive-thru for French fries that I would eventually find under your car seat…and candy your tummy always had room for…

The endless hours of driving matchbox cars on everything…often left in pants pockets that would later be discovered in the washing machine {a.k.a the “car wash”}…

Countless trips to the park…duck feedings…and playground adventures…

T-ball and soccer games played…moments in the sun making your freckles pop and your blue eyes glisten…

Knock-knock jokes told…songs sung…preschool concert nights…

Camcorder moments of you in your sweet, small voice announcing that all things purple would forever be known as “grape”

Your small hand in mine as we walked…the random hugs that always came at the right time…and the “I love you oodles and oodles” that flowed from your lips…

Little-boy messages left on my desk with misspelled words & backward letters expressing your love and sweet thoughts…{I am so blessed}

…you are loved more than you will ever know…

…you have provided more joy than I can quantify….

I won’t even try to take credit for the beautiful person you are…{that was all God’s doing}…

And your placement in my life is a testament that God gives us gifts based on HIS perfect love….

I am forever thankful to Him for your life and the love you bring to my world…

With much love,

Mom
