Our son will be three...in a matter of days, Deacon will be three. This week is full of reflection and preparation. We keep birthdays low key, but in no way does that mean we don't "celebrate" his life. Doug and I have his Godparents and Grandparents over for dinner and it is just a time of celebration. It is also a time for thanksgiving. It honestly does take a village to raise our son, and we are so blessed to have such a happy, loving village! Doug and I each have large families and each one knows how crucial they are in the raising of Deacon and we are thankful for each one of them. This dinner, however is just a special thanks to our parents and Deacon's Godparents.
Our parents have done more for us than what we can even describe. We are the parents we are because of the unconditonal love they gave us from birth on. Seeing our parents dote on their grandchild is almost like seeing the face of God--it is simply amazing.
Deacon's Godparents are also pretty special to and they deserve the recognition. the kind heart that are helping build a strong foundation for Deacon to grow into a Christ-filled life is awesome. Mike (Mother) and my twin, Theresa have done nothing but love our child and we are eternally grateful for that.
More reflection/pictures to follow--just know I'll be a sobby mess the next few days as I think about this little miracle that changed my life 3 years ago.
