8 Years of Our "Force of Nature"
Eight years ago, after a hard birth with a broken clavicle and absence of breathing, I held my little "force of nature" in my arms for the first time. My Eaglet.
He came in with a bang and continues to be our little firecracker. I love his positive energy, along with so many other wonderful traits, including:
I love Eaglet's heart. He received a birthday card in the mail a few days ago with $8.00 in it. His eyes became real wide as he counted his money. A few minutes later, he came running to me with a Samaritan's Purse magazine. It was opened to a page that described how for $9.00, you can feed a hungry baby or nursing mother for a week. "That's what I want to do with my money, Mommy."
I love Eaglet's artistic bent. He spends hours per week with a pencil in his hand. His birthday request was to climb the Butte and draw.
I love Eaglet's can-do spirit. He is very decisive. When something needs to be done, he gets up and gets it done.
I love watching these gifts and talents as they unfold.... I love that about parenting all my precious little knights! Love knowing that God has good plans in store for them to use these things to His glory; they're already livin' it. What else is in store?
I love you, Eaglet. I'm so thankful that part of The Master's Plan is for you to be a part of this family of ours!
