Wordful Wednesday: A Letter to my Boy

Photobucket

This picture was taken of Joe Braden by my SIL while at Thanksgiving.

Joe Braden,
You are my beautiful Angel boy, and such a gift from above. From the very first time you were even thought about you were loved. I will never forget the first time I looked into your beautiful big brown eyes, I knew you loved me and that we would always have a bond. You make my life eventful from your dramatic story telling, to your sweet hugs, even you little mad fits, I love it all.
You make me proud with your kind sweet heart, the way you help others and always root for the underdog. You make me want to be more like you every day. You are your Daddy's twin sometimes it seems, with the same beautiful olive skin, and dark hair, your sense of humor and beautiful smile.
You always aim to please God and that makes me so proud and very happy. I pray that you never lose sight of why we are on this earth. Always keep God first son, and know that he will always take care of you.
I love you more than I can ever explain in words,
Mama
