::and then he was four::

The most amazing day of my life will always be the day you were born. Four years ago.
There was a shift, a indescribable warmth that blossomed in my soul when I held you for the first time.
You are a daily reminder of the hope of eternity...the hope of beautiful and perfect and just in all it's fullness.
Your sweet gentleness is like none I've ever seen in any person and I believe it will be with you forever.
There is a peace about you that I hope you never lose.
I will never know all the answers (or even all the questions) in this life but I do believe you have a truly amazing purpose. I believe many people, because of you, will learn how to be kind, will learn how to love unselfishly and maybe find the hope that I see in you.
From this moment on, you can be anything you want to be.
You are brimming with promise.
I love you more and more each day.
I am blessed, bigger than the sky, to be your mommy.
Happy Birthday my dear Luke.
