Keen Observations on Life … Whether You Need Them or Not

Happy 14th Birthday to My Sweet Pea


Fourteen years ago I was drifting on a plane of blissful post-23 hour labor recovery, holding in my arms the most perfect little person I could have ever dreamed of calling my own.

What an adventure my little Sweet Pea has led us on. He’s so full of laughter and happiness, curiosity and cunning, kindness and generosity. He makes me a better, more patient person. He keeps my husband and I young, and I find that I can’t wait to visit with him in the morning before school … I never know what he’s going to say.

Happy, Happy Birthday, Peyton!

  1. I think the best thing that can happen to a loved child is to become a parent him/herself. It might make you a little more understanding of how very much YOU are loved and cherished. I had the very best mother and daddy in the world. I tried to pass on that love and upbringing to my own child. I am so very blessed to see that carried on to my grandson. How very lucky we are to be raised in such acceptance, support, and total love.
