Eight years ago today, I became a mother. It is the hardest thing I have ever done, and the most heartbreaking, but I wouldn't trade it for anything! Happy birthday Buddies! I miss you like crazy and look forward to the day when I can hold you in my arms again and kiss you, and hug you, and go kick a ball with you! I don't get to see you get baptized, but I get to know you have already passed the test and that there are only bigger and better things left for you to experience! There is one happy memory that for some reason is more vivid than most. It wasn't a special occasion or anything, but just one of those sweet mommy moments that was burned into my subconscious! We were standing in the doorway of the kitchen, and you wanted me to bend down to your level. Once there, you gave me a kiss. That memory is so strong that whenever I think of it, I can still almost literally feel your sweet, cool lips on mine! How I cherish that sweet innocent kiss! I think of that heaven kiss and hope it again reaches heaven tonight!
