Gabe Turns 10

Happy Birthday my dear boy, you are getting so big!

This year I would say you have learned so much about yourself. You have learned the importance of hard work, and I could not be more proud. You worked so hard in school this year, and improved so much in a few short months.
 You have learned the value of money and have been doing such an amazing job with extra chores to earn it.

Gabe, you are such a sweet boy. I hope you know that. I hope you make a list of things that are important for you to do and to see and I hope you do them. This year Gabe, I am taking a small trip alone. It's just to BC, but I am doing it by myself and I am dong it because I hate doing things alone. I do not enjoy being alone and I definitely feel apprehensive traveling alone, but I want to push myself to try new things and see places and have memories that are just mine. I want you to do the same. I want you to push yourself and to try new things. I want you to meet people and learn to be comfortable alone. I think you are like me in that regard, so I hope you learn it sooner then I am.

Happy birthday sweet boy, you are the reason women have children, in hopes they get children like you. Your smile is contagious and your laugh is healing.
I love you my boy!



I am grateful Gabe is healthy, happy and that I get to be your mom forever.
