Happy Birthday Paul!

Today is February 9th, 2011.

22 years ago today, I became a mother.

Paul John Dziadul, Jr., was born at 10:52pm after a very long, very tough 3 day labor.

But every pain, every contraction, was worth it.

He was a treasure from the moment I first laid eyes on him.  I remember holding him at the hospital, drinking him in with my eyes.  I couldn't get enough. 

22 years later, I still can't get enough.  No longer a baby, no longer a boy, he is now a man.

But this mom still sees the little boy in every smile and every laugh, in every grimace and grin.

And I hope that never changes.

Happy Birthday Paul.  You are one in a million, a unique creation of God and I am so glad you are mine.

I love you.
