TO LOVE A CHILD

To love a child is a selfless act. It sparks the moment we conceive, and lasts to the very edge of the moment we transition into death. A word that best describes our relationship with our children? Empathy. I choose this word as it is the only one I can think of in the wide world of vocabulary that accurately depicts what I have felt since my son's inception: Empathy: * I cried when he was born and the doctor slapped him; * I felt the pain during his first shot; * I cried at night when neither one of us could figure out what was wrong and why we couldn't sleep; * I rooted for him as he struggled to his knees to crawl and eventually to his feet to walk; * I laughed hysterically the first time he discovered something funny; * I cinched with pain from every "owie" inflicted from falling down and slamming fingers in doors; * I sunk with depression when we had to leave each other on his first day of day care; * I rejoiced in the beauty

FIRST DANCE OF THE YEAR

Well, it's official, school is in. My son has begun his Junior year of high school and last night was the first dance of the year. This is a picture of my son Brice and his friend Morgan. I drove them to the dance last night and it was great listening to them chat in the back seat about all the weird things only they could come with. Oh the memories - LOL . Sad to think that in a few short years I am going to suffer hard from empty nest syndrome. Oey !!!!
