Thirty Days of Thanksgiving


Day 24:

Today, I’m thankful for sixteen wonderful years with my son Nolan.  He has truly been a delight in every way.  I remember just “knowing” that he was a boy the entire pregnancy and being absolutely panicked at the idea of raising a boy. I remembered praying that God would change him into a girl– yeah, I was a bit freaked out.  I also knew that once he was here, I’d be fine.  Yes, raising boys are absolutely different, but I wouldn’t trade him (in the words of Diana Barry Wright) “for a million girls.”

Happy Birthday son o’ mine.  I love you.
