My Sunshine.

When The Boy was the tiniest baby he earned the nickname Sunshine.
He's beautiful and genuine and can light up a room.
His sense of humor, at only 7, constantly has us rolling with laughter.
His creativity is beyond anything I could imagine. I'm envious of it.


The other day at school his assignment was to write a poem about nature.
Here's his poem.

If I were the sun, I'd shine on the pool.
I'd be in the sky.
I'd help the world grow.
I'd give light.
I'd love the world so.


Oh, my sweet middle child, you do shine so bright!!

You give light to everyone who knows you. You inspire me.


*sigh* My Sunshine.

(Thank you for allowing me a mommy bragging moment. I try not to do too many of them because I recognize that everyone's kids are brilliant and gorgeous and talented! But I just melted when I read this.)

Are you kidding? This was priceless. I played, "Friend Like You" as I looked and read. You should do it. It adds to the beautiful art that is HIM. And the photo of him between the two walls? buildings? whatever those are is art's perfection and epitomizes the "middle" aspect as well as the impact of his future.

THANK YOU for sharing.
