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.
