To Wyatt on our first Mother's Day together

Wyatt, where do I begin? I have been thinking of everything I wanted to write about for a couple of days now. Even though we celebrated me being your mother last year, this time is different. This time, I know what you look like, I know your personality, I know every feature about your little body. This Mother's Day is much different, which is why I need to tell you...

Wyatt, I love you. I have never loved anyone or anything close to how much I love you. You are part of me. You cannot do anything to make me love you any less. As long as I am alive, you will know that you are loved and cherished. I am not me without you.

My life before you was defined by the people in it and the things I had experienced along the way. I am now wearing the greatest badge of all, Mom. Mom to Wyatt! I am so proud to be Wyatt's Mom, it has been the most amazing role. (Not without challenges, though!)

I want you to know that I prayed for you every single day of my life for YEARS before I knew you. I prayed that you would exist one day. I prayed that I would get to meet you, hold you, help you grow, watch you become a little human, and eventually a man. You are the greatest gift that God has ever given me. I want you to know that Daddy & I know you are on loan to us from God, our heavenly Father. He is letting us borrow you for the time that we are here on earth, and we see that as a wonderful and faithful gift.

Finally, Boogie-man, I want you to know that I could never be the Mom I am to you without having the Mom I have. Your Granmommy is not only an amazing Granmommy, she is an amazing Mommy to me and Uncle. She set the bar high when it comes to Moms. She is kind, loving, gracious, faithful, and she taught me everything I know about being a Mommy. She shows us what love looks like here on earth. She has taught me how to work hard for what you want in life, those things don't just fall in your lap. She taught us to be generous with what God has given us, and that we are blessed to bless others. She loves all kiddos, but she loves you most of all. You made her a "Granmommy" for the very first time. That is so special. Do you know, that may be one of my favorite things about you, Wyatt. You made my mom a Granmommy!

I can't wait to hear you say "Happy Mother's Day, Mom!" but that doesn't make this one any less special. I know you don't know that this day is any different than other Sundays, but I want you know that it is. This Sunday is one of the most special in my whole life. You are the best thing that has ever happened to me, and I love you, Wyatt. I love you with my whole heart!
