4 Years Old

One of my resolutions for 2012 is to blog again about my beautiful Jackson. Wow... has he changed our lives. Every year that goes by I am amazed at the beauty I see in my firstborn son. He loves life! He loves people! He loves... And he's not ashamed to show it! (If you've ever met Jackson, you know what I'm talking about.)

I fight tears every time I think of how he entered this world... I watch the video we made for him and find myself sobbing by the end. What an amazing boy. What a gift. What a beautiful glimpse into this imperfect life that we live... but how so much beauty can be found in its imperfection.

Jackson turns 4 tomorrow. And I couldn't be more thankful for the boy that made me a mother. He has changed me. Made me better. Made me stronger. And made me open my eyes to the beauty that surrounds me every day if I just open my heart.

I love you, Jackson. Happy 4th Birthday!
