Happy Birthday late to my special guy. We had to put off his party because of having extras here for the summer, but I think he agreed it was worth the wait! He got to have some of his friends over for the day and a sleepover. They were full of energy and orneriness, but it was a lot of fun!
Canon makes life so much more fascinating - his perspective on everything always makes me stop and take things in more fully. His discerning spirit and individuality will take him far in life. I have no concerns of him ever being a follower - he will never march to anyone's drumbeat other than his own...and I'm so proud of him for that. I pray for him every day, that God will protect his soft spirit and loving manners. He is so young and innocent and childlike, but still so intelligent and a deep thinker. He is sensitive to things most boys don't even pay attention to, and I worry that his hurts run deeper than most people's do. It is an exciting and exhausting thing to think about where God will take him, how God will use his unique personality for His good. It has been and is going to continue to be a wild ride, but I am so thankful God chose me to be his mama.
