A Special Day

You came from the starry sky
You’re the apple of your mama’s eye
Little Leo, little Leo

You came from the clouds above
You are full of love
Little Leo, little Leo

You came from the ocean so blue
Everybody loves you
You came from the ocean so blue
Little Leo, little Leo

You came from the beautiful trees
You have got the cutest knees
You came from the beautiful trees
Little Leo, little Leo

Leo, you are beautiful
Leo, you are beautiful
Oh Leo I love you
Little Leo, little Leo

 

That was my mama’s song that fell from my lips 8 years ago today! Being a Mom to this not-so-little one anymore has been the best gift ever!

So today, Leo….

 

May I be patient and understanding, as you find your way through Legos and soccer balls into the world of big-boy-hood.
May I show you kindness in all moments, so that you’ll offer a genuine smile and helping hand to those you meet.
May I allow you to be scared and sad, and cry with you openly, so that one day you will do the same with your son.
May I express anger and frustration appropriately, encouraging you to your authentic expression, yet harming none.
May I be true to myself and dance, so that you honor free will in yourself, and in others too.
May I cheer you in your every endeavor, so that you remember that life supports you.
May I help you meet challenges with a gleam in my eye, so you will know that anything is possible!
May I bring on my silly, and laugh often, so you may know that life is meant to be joyous!
And may I always remind you that you are loved, and you are Love.

Happy Birthday Leo!
