in awe.

I am constantly in awe how something like this:

can grow into this so quickly.

Booker is 7 today.  He is truly one special boy.  Each time I look at him in awe of all he does and who he is reminds me what a miracle he is.  7 years ago I sat in a hospital bed holding him.. not quite sure what I was suppose to to do things just the right way. Booker has taught me how to be a mother. He has helped shape me into a better person..taught me to look at life with a grateful and detailed eye..and has shown me how to enjoy the simple things. His LOVE and ZEST for life is contagious. I am constantly saying that if I moved around and enjoyed my life as Booker does NOTHING COULD STOP ME!  He is one incredible kid and I feel SO blessed to have him in my life.
