If only he knew it’s moments like this that I wish would last forever.

He knows when I need to hit life’s pause button, and breathe a little deeper.

He reminds me to slow down, and look at things a little closer.

He reminds me that every moment can be beautiful if we only gave it the chance.

He reminds me that I was put on this earth to do one thing, and that is to love.

To love him, to love my family, to love the world around me, and to love myself.

I love you my son and I will always cherish everything you teach me.
