HE MADE ME A MOTHER FIRST ... Happy 13th Birthday Jeremiah


(this is my most favorite picture taken of Jeremiah ... His eyes show all that HE is ... kind, handsome, loving, strong, and a young man of the LORD) ... 



I am not even going to try and put words on this post of exactly how I feel  ... I have been a bit weepy all day, but in a joyful way ... Jeremiah turns 13 today ... I think of all the first with him - first word "DaDa", first sentence "Det dat ball" and first step "at a basketball game" ... I remember Scott praying over me when the doctors said the cord was around his neck and we needed to do a C-section ... I was so afraid and yet I knew God was in control ... The moment I saw Jeremiah for the first time was one of the happiest moments of my life .... He was everything I had dreamed about and more !!! I remember how then and evert day now he makes me feel special as his mother  ...

He is my heart and the ONE who made me a mother first ... He is truly the best parts of both Scott and I ... His love for others and they way he loves his brothers and sisters is humbling to me ... He gives so much !!! I love this age with him ... We have great talks, laugh, and just hang out together ... We talk about dreams for his future and what it will be like when he gets a car or he loves to talk about going back to Uganda to see Katie and the girls ... He is simply the best and I want to thank him for teaching me so much and for all his sweet hugs and kisses ...

Thank YOU LORD for my Jeremiah !!!








LOVE YOU JEREMIAH SCOTT OATSVALL ... MAY YOUR WINGS ALWAYS FLY HIGH FOR THE LORD ... Always remember the 3H'S ... HUNGRY, HOLY, AND HUMBLE !!! 

love, Dad, Mom, Elijah, Emily, Maggie, Joseph, and Daisy
