Story of my Life by Oatsvall Team | Edit Post
How does a mother truly describe into words the amazing person her child is ... It was easy to come up with a symbol for Elijah because he makes everyday a surprise for me ... He brings us all JOY and when people meet him they instantly fall in LOVE with him because God has gifted him with the ability to make JOY out of even the simplest things ... Hand him a piece of gum and his face lights up, ask him to ride in the car with you somewhere and it's as if you just invited him to Disneyland, or hand him a $1 toy and you have just made his day ... He always reminds me to stop and smell the roses that our FATHER created ... He puts a smile on my face each and every day !!! My heart is filled with his contagious energy and I am so proud and honored to be his mother ...
Now along with all that joy comes the RED HEADED emotions, which some days get the best of him, but I know that is just because he loves so hard, gives so much, his feelings are hurts easier, and all his emotions are just heightened ... It is a GIFT and I know in the future it will serve him well ... He has a true gift to LOVE on the spot with no questions ask and I love that about him ... To be honest Elijah has probably helped Maggie in her adjustment more than anyone since she came home a year ago ... She didn't like him at all and I am not exaggerating ... She wouldn't look at him, wouldn't talk to him, hit him if he came near, and scratched at him all the time, but he never once gave up trying to love her !!! Everyday he would try and kiss her good bye before going to school and would run to her in the afternoon when he got home ... He helped her to learn that no matter how many times you turn me away I am your brother and I love you !!!!
Elijah, your dad and I could not be more proud of you ... You are one amazing son and you bring us more JOY than we deserve !!!!
Love You Elijah !!!
