7 Years and 3 Hours Ago...

Gabriel Eric came into my world and made me a mommy for the first time!  He created my role for me; my current employment-to be the best mommy that I can be.  Yes, there are days that I should be fired, but my boys keep me around.  :-)

Ah, I am having such a bittersweet day.  I have loved every minute of celebrating my now 7-year old son, but he starts school again tomorrow, and he will be a 1st grader!!  Where does the time go?  I feel that my job as his full-time mommy has just gotten pushed to part-time status and there is nothing that I can do to stop it.  He will officially be at school for more hours during the day than he will be at home with me, and I don't think it is bothering him one bit.  I am glad that it is not.  If it were bothering him, I would be an even more sniffling, blubbering fool.  I've been good, and have only broken down twice in the last 24 hours, but I can tear up just thinking about how much I am going to miss that boy of mine!  7 years flew by too fast.  I blinked, and he is walking the hallways by himself, not holding my hand anymore, and just being so independent. 

I love you Gabriel Eric, and I have such high hopes and dreams for you, but the most important things that I want for you is to be happy and to know how much you have changed my life for the better.  There are no words to describe the love I feel for you!  You will always be the one who made me a mommy!

Awww...I'm tearing up reading your words!! ((HUGS)) I know today is hard. Just remember he is that great kid because you've done an excellent job as a mommy. :)
