The Day My Boy Turned Nine

It’s been nine years of this crazy adventure of raising a little man.

Nine years of courage and passion, joy and strength.

And my heart swells looking upon the man God is growing this now nine-year-old of mine to be.

Oh, Isaiah Gabriel, our lives are so much richer and more glorious because of you.

Through you I am continually learning what it means to show honor, to be humble, and to be an ordinary everyday hero – one that walks with God in the big and the oh-so-little.

You, my boy, show me the sweet struggle to display these characteristics.

For God knows that we are both finding that it’s His love in our hearts and the strength He gives us on the inside that truly matters.

I’m forever grateful we get to do this together.

You and your passion.

You and your dedication.

You and your love for basketball and heroism and all things Narnia.

You and the ways you think of and cherish and try to protect this mama.

Oh, I love you!
