16 Things We Love About YOU

I teared up with this birthday this year.  This awesome kid has gotten over the hump of crazy grouchy teenage boy hormones and has became one of those sweetest, most pleasant, responsible, dependable, and handsome teenagers I have ever met.  I know I'm his mom, and you all would say that I'm biased.  Maybe a little.  But if you've met him or know him, I think you'd absolutely agree too!

Obviously with this birthday, we also celebrated a big milestone - DRIVING!!  And he passed his driving test and got all his hours in, so he's an official driver.  And what a blessing that is!!!  It's so strange still, but the reality is setting in and man, it totally takes a different trust in God and letting go even more.

So I've already shared a few things above, but here's 16 more things we love about this guy - Fone....

#1 ~ that you play games with me (Rose)

#2 ~ that you are my best friend (Mario)

#3 ~ you are handsome 

#4 ~ you are nice to me and kiss me (Yoda)

#5 ~ you help me with my school if mom is busy (Rose, Pookey, Max)

#6 ~ your drive to always do your best 

#7 ~ you babysit me (Max)

#8 ~ you play video games with me like Clash of Clans and Clash Royale (Ariel)

#9 ~ you are so responsible and an amazing helper/volunteer who genuinely wants to help others 

#10 ~ I like playing games/video games with you (Mario)

#11 ~ you are smart and do amazing with your school

#12 ~ your snuggles and smooches (Lady)

#13 ~ you are funny (Melody)

#14 ~ you were the first to call me "Mom" and have made all these firsts so fun and enjoyable

#15 ~ you help me when I play video games (Pookey)

#16 ~ I am a mini YOU!  (Pookey)

++God love you and bless always, Fone!  We love you and are SO proud of you!!  May St Christopher always intercede for you in safe travels!++

12 Tonight - 13 Tomorrow

Going to bed 12.
Goodbye childhood years.

Tomorrow we will welcome teenage girlhood into our home.

I look at this beautiful girl and am in awe of her joy, her attitude, her brains, her beauty, her maturity, her faith, her love and just wonder what God has planned for her. I know one thing for sure - she's going to be one amazing mom! Being the oldest girl in a large family is excellent training for future motherhood, by the way!

I hope and pray she can surpass all of my own goals and successes in life and also learn from my mistakes and failings and rise above them to shine to be a beautiful daughter of Christ!

I hope and pray that we can be the closest of friends as well, because we all know the bond between a mother and a daughter is so special.

Happy birthday, dear!  
I love you SO much and am so proud of you!!!!!!

++May God love you and bless you always!!++
