Happy 18th Birthday, to my Son!

I can't believe my son is 18 years old today - seems like yesterday I was bringing him home from the hospital. He has made my life so much better by being in it. I could not have asked for a better son - even in my wildest dreams and most heartfelt prayers. He has exceeded anything I could have ever imagined. I know he is going to be a productive, inspiring, adult. He has made me proud to be his mother and I know he will continue to make me proud. I made him a card and this is what it said: Dear Son, Ever since you were born I worried and wondered about whether or not I was being the best parent I could be. Did I make you feel important? Did we find enough time for the little things that live on in happy memories - like laughter, and hugs, and "just-between-us" moments? And, even when we disagreed, did you always know I loved you? Of all the things in my life that I might have or could have or should have done differently, there's one thing I'd never change, and that's having you for a son... If I didn't always find a way to say it, I hope I always showed it - I'm proud to be your parent and I love you, Son. Happy Birthday
