These 24 Days of Thankfulness have allowed me to stop and take time to really reflect on what’s important in my life and whether or not I act like they are. And one of those is my children. I love my children with all my heart and would never do anything to harm them. But sometimes I get so caught up in my own life and world that I don’t let them in. Or at least not enough to show them just how much they mean to me. So for the next 4 days I am going to reflect on each of my children.
Day 4 ~ I am thankful for my oldest son, Mister Bull
I knew Mister Bull was going to be a music-loving, enthusiastic, wild and crazy boy even before he was born. He was so enthusiastic that he came four and a half weeks early! Since then he hit the ground running and hasn’t stopped in over 8 years!! I can’t believe it’s been 8 years since his first Thanksgiving. 8 years since his first Christmas. And 8 years since he stole my heart and had me wrapped around his finger.
Mister Bull is all boy. He is too smart for his own good, full of energy – even at 7 am, sweet, loving, kind, loves games and dislikes schoolwork. He is funny and witty and full of life. His imagination is mind-blowing to me. He plays outside for hours using his imagination, which I love. Sometimes I even sneak pictures of him when he’s “in his element.” He loves to have quiet time by himself in the mornings before the other kids get up – it seems to set his mood and tone for the day. So we try to give him his space.
His smiles and belly laughs give me more joy than I ever imagined possible. He is my most favorite 8 year old!!! I love how much he wants to spend time with his Dad – even if it is while his Daddy works at the church. I love how much he wants to be a helper when he is at the church. I love the way he holds and loves on his youngest sister and how they are inseparable most of the time. It is one of the sweetest things I have ever witnessed. They are definitely buddies.
While he may not like schoolwork right now, I can see great things coming from him in the future. He loves Science and building things. I can see him being an engineer or an architect. But whatever he chooses, whatever path he decides to take, I just pray it is through prayerful consideration and with God’s plan at the forefront. If he remains faithful to Jesus Christ – everything else will fall into place. And I will be the most blessed Mom in the world!
