13 Hours

Today causes me to reflect on my life, my family and my child. 17 years ago I was in labor with my first child for 13 hours. A scary time for me, I was, at the time a single mother having her first child. He weighted 10lbs. 11oz. 23 in. long. (HUGE) That scared feeling disappeared the minute I heard him cry.Today my first born turns 17.WOW..........As I reflect on those 17 years we are so have been so blessed by this child. He has grown into a fine, tall, large,hard working man. Sometimes I can't imagine the things I have let him do, then on the flip side the things he is able to do. He is alot like me in ways sometimes I dislike,(stubborn)but God has blessed us both with this young man and we are so thankful for him. If you haven't meet my son he is a big teddy bear(sometimes grizzle). Here's to our son, Happy 17th Birthday. I love you more than you will ever know. Have a great day................
