13 years ago....


....I was handed a package. After two days of no progress, A LOT of pitocin, no progress, labor pains, no progress, epidural, no progress, dropping of heartbeats, c-section...I was handed a package.

This package has been such a blessing to my soul, my life, and my being. He is a source of joy, contentment, validation, laughter, and REALLY good back rubs! In his stick-thin build (that is beginning to tower over me in height!) lurks eyes of wisdom beyond his years. He is in tune to the Spirit. He is kind. He is creative and talented. He loves and honors his priesthood. He is my first glimpse of my forever family. He makes me want to be a better person.

Not a package....A gift.

Happy Birthday, Kyson!! I love you!!
