Twenty-eight years ago, I gave birth to my last child. I was thirty years old at the time, and not prepared for the twenty-one hours of labor that it took to get him here! Today, that child is a grown, twenty-eight year old married man, who is about to become a parent himself. My how the years have flown, and times have changed!
I had the pleasure of spending some time with Brad, on Monday afternoon. He finished work early, and came by here, on his way home, to pick up his social security card. We spent several hours just talking. It was so good to have that time together! It meant a lot to this tired, old mama.
I spent a lot of time trying to figure out what I wanted to do in honor of Brad’s 28th birthday. I settled on making a birthday montage. For me, the most difficult part of making a video montage, is choosing the song. I’ve discovered if I look long enough, and hard enough, I’ll find just the right song–and I did. I couldn’t have said the words better, if I’d have written them myself. The title? “A Mom’s Song”.
Once I put the montage together and watched it, tears came to this mama’s eyes. Where did all those years go? Just like the song says, this mama is very proud of the man her little boy grew up to become. He’s a wonderful husband, and I have no doubts, he’ll be a fantastic daddy as well. He’s a pretty darn good son, too!
Happy Birthday, Brad! Wish you were here 🙂
