Today’s post is very special to my heart.
Today, my first-born baby turns 11 years old. Yup, 11!
Dominick has turned from a 7.7 lbs baby boy to a tall, handsome, dark-eyed, gel-in-the-hair, soccer-playing, music-making, book-loving, little-brother-teasing, fun and loving young man:)
Through these 11 years, I have learned SO much from this fantastic human being.
As much as my job is to teach and guide him, it is HIM who has been teaching me invaluable life lessons in patience, love, support, open-heartedness, sensitivity and kindness.
He holds my heart and soul tightly. My love. My love. My love.
Dominick is most DEFINITELY the manager of this blog of mine. He checks all of my posts, publishes them (won’t be publishing this surprise one, though!), and reviews all of the statistics. AND, he takes photographs without complaining when I ask for re-takes! Most importantly, he ALWAYS supports me unconditionally in this venture.
The love and special bond I share with my son is a true gift. Each day I am humbled and oh so grateful for receiving this special gift from God.
Dominick, each day I look at you, I am reminded how much pure goodness there is in this world. I am reminded what true love means. I am reminded how very, extremely lucky I am.
Happy Birthday my love! Happy Birthday Dominick! Kocham Cię mocno!
