My oldest son and his wife came in for the holidays. The holidays are a very difficult time for my daughter and I was so appreciative of him stepping in and taking time to give me a break from the emotional mine field that often accompanies this time of year.
Simply put, "sugar Man" you are my first born. When I looked at you, I thought... "I will never love another human being like I love you." Well, any mother or more than one child, knows that isn't true. I love them all the same amount, but differently as they are all different.
You have given my such joy. And even though you will never read this, I just have to share that you are such an amazing young man. You are soft spoken, and even though you are over 6 feet tall, when I look at you I see that sweet faced little boy with shining brown eyes who saw the wonder in everything in your world. You still see the world, only now you are looking for a way to make it a better place.
Your love for your sister is such a sweetness to me that it is often hard to breathe when I watch you with her. You are consistent and strong with compassion. Your loyalty to those you love is strong and large. Your love for your grandparents is a precious jewel that is hard to find and rare in it's beauty.
