A Wish For My Son...
I love my son with every breath I take. That sounds cliche, but its true. I imagine it is hard for any mother to put into words how much she loves her son (or her daughter). I don't think there are enough words in written language to adequately express how much WA means to me. I want the world for him but I will settle for these precious things:
I wish for him to find a wife (or husband) that will love everything about him and see what I see, when I look into his eyes and his smile and his heart. I want her (or him) to honor and cherish him and take care of him when I will no longer be able to. I want him to find a woman (or man) that he loves so deeply that he can spend the rest of his life happy and satisfied in that person's arms, and heart.
I want him to serve his community. I wish for him a compassion so large that it moves him to change the injustices of the world, but not so large it crushes his spirit. I wish for him a loving heart and an intelligent mind to create positive changes for humanity in his daily life.
I wish for him a great and meaningful relationship with God. I wish for him an internal light that burns bright and will never be extinguished by the evils of his fellow man.
I want my son to know I love him.
