As I watch my son constantly growing, learning and looking forward; it is a reminder for me to keep doing the same.
As adults we have a tendency to dwell on the past, but children don’t do this, they are too busy with now. While our past is part of what we are, so is the present and the future too.
So, I want to thank my wonderful son for his constant smiles and happy outlook on life. For getting me through some pretty rough times and giving me the strength and light to survive. I thank him for helping me grow so much as a person, teaching me to love unconditionally, and live in the now. For being my shining star.
I cannot, will not dwell, because my son is growing, moving forward and I want to be there with him.
