{thankful thursday} my eldest

to my lute
from the moment you came into existence
you changed my life forever.
you are observant and kind and generous of heart.
you are creative and curious and oh so funny.
i love our sweet, quiet moments together.
our silly, goofy moments laughing and playing and dancing.
exploring and learning, just being.
i want you to know that you are all you should be.
you are brave and good and sweet.
you have taught me more about love in the last five years than i thought possible.
i didn't know the capacity my heart had for it until i laid eyes on your perfect little face.
you are my sweet little man, my compassionate companion,
heart of my heart.
i am thankful for you, buddy,
now and always.

it's thankful thursday! hang out with us, will ya?
what has blessed you this week?
a friend or stranger, a quiet moment alone, 
a special treat, grace in a moment you didn't expect?
big or small, it doesn't matter: there is always something to be grateful for.
grab a button, link up your post, and visit some new friends!
