My Heart...

It's my son's birthday!! He is 3 years old today!! I cannot get over how quickly the time went by. He is the absolute love of my life - my husband is a very close second and he's okay with it :)!! The pic above was taken when my son was only one month old - seems like yesterday!

What does my son's birthday have to do with my journey?? EVERYTHING!!! I'm doing this for him!!! I want to be as healthy as possible for him! I want to be around to celebrate as many of his birthdays as possible!! I make reference to my son often in my posts. He is the number one reason why I finally decided to start this journey and he remains my daily inspiration and motivation for sticking with this journey. I love him and I'm so proud of the little man that he is, so today, I wanted to wish him a very Happy Birthday!! Of course, I've got lots of Birthday plans for today and this weekend.

This is a pic of him on his birthday last year!! You are my heart, sweetie and I love you very much. I have never felt a love more pure and deep. I hope one day, when you're all grown up, you can look back and read this and know just how much you were loved and how much you mean to me (and Daddy). You've completed every corner of my heart! Happy Birthday my sweet baby!

Here's one of my favorite poems by Mencita (Carmen) Monoi Angel.

Precious as a Child

Nothing should be more precious than a child
Nothing should be more contagious than a smile of a child

Nothing should be more cared of than a child
Children's innocence so often shattered
Children's love so often flouted

Nothing should be of more importance than a child
Nothing should be more powerfully loved by us than a child

Children's spontaneity so often trampled on
Children's forgiveness so often ignored

Nothing should be more cherished in this world than a child
Nothing should be more hugged with affection than a child

Tell me stranger, what is more beautiful and precious than any dear child

Until next time
