i started writing this post on the 10th but could not finish.
i was too busy
monte turned twelve tuesday. and i needed to be too busy too tired and too preoccupied because it was too hard for me to handle the truth staring me in the face.
his friends decorated his locker
his friends were anxious to sing to him at lunch
his friends–that is who he wanted to be with on his birthday
and it made me sad
until i stopped and thought about how thankful i am for his friends.
his friends went to school early to prank him by taping his locker shut
his friends will go with us on a mission trip this coming march
his friends will be with him when i am not the answer
so today i am so thankful
for his mercy heart
for his unfailing courage
for his love for others
for being his mom
happy birthday son-you are something heavenly to me
