Happy Birthday, Randy!

My dear friend Leah, from Ohio, asked if I would mind posting a birthday note to her son, Randy. She is a mom, just like me, waiting for her child.

Leah, on this day, I pray that the wonderful memories are louder than the pain you feel from missing him. I love you. I am blessed to know you. And I'll be right here all day.


I recall sitting beside your bed during thunderstorms, we played in sandboxes, slid down slides together, I worried through your fevers, we battled monsters in closets, you helped me mend your broken toys and you kissed my boo boos like I kissed yours. I have laughed louder, smiled broader and loved more profoundly because of you.

Happy 4th Birthday Randy.
I Love You Son,
