To My Fast Growing Son..

Photo taken two days ago..


Looking at this photo now, I am choked with emotions.   I am amazed how much my boy has grown! No prize for guessing which foot belongs to who though.   We shared the same shoe size last year and now look, his feet has outsized mine by an inch and he only turns ten next month! *sweat*  No, no, no early empty nest syndrome, please..  I don't want my "best friend" to grow up so fast and the he will soon spread his wings and have his own circle of friends and life.   Ok, I lied a little.  There are times when I hope I can have my life back, not worrying about meals not cooked, household chores not done, not preparing him enough for exams and the list goes on.   
 
Having said that, the boy is the best thing that has ever happened to me.  This year marks the fourth year I become "Just A Mom".  Life has never been rosy and smooth but seeing the boy grows up happy and healthy is all a mother would ask for and no amount of salary increments and bonuses could beat that, ya, I am such an "useless" and "hopeless" being to some who are not on the same wavelength. Never mind that.  With all the good words that he gets from relatives, friends, and neighbours, I know I have done something quite right.
 
Though he drives me up the wall sometimes, if given a second chance, I would still choose to hold his hand and walk his growing up journey together.
 
No amount of gold could ever compare, to the gift of love that my son shares.
He gives reason to get through another day.
Maybe it's how he loves me in his special little way.
And when I feel down and dejected....
He wraps his arms around me and says God will make things right!
From sweet gentle touches to his bear hugs and a kiss...
He makes this hell on earth seem more like a peaceful bliss.
That great big kool-aid smile and the twinkle in his eyes....
Every time I look at him it makes me want to cry.
But they're not tears of sorrow; they're tears of pride and joy....
To know that all the love in heaven is wrapped around my little boy
I Love You, Son. I Honestly Do..
