Birthday wishes for my firstborn!

Happy Birthday Army Wife! As my first baby, you’ll always be the one who pro­moted me to the status of Madre, Mom, Mama, Mommy. And today you’re 27 years old. Twenty-seven! Time cer­tainly does fly.

Every child’s birthday causes par­ents to pause and remember. I’m cer­tainly no dif­ferent. I can still clearly remember the day you came into this world. I wasn’t super young…in fact, I was the same age you are today. But age doesn’t really pre­pare you for mom­my­hood now, does it? But regard­less of age, I was full of hopes and dreams for your life.

Twenty-seven years have passed and I see a beau­tiful young woman with a family of her own. We’ve made won­derful mem­o­ries together and I cherish all of them.…yes, even the dark, high school years. Of course, I’m thinking we could have prob­ably done without those expe­ri­ences, but looking back, I see how they helped mold us into the women we are today. We all make mis­takes along the way, but never doubt that you are a gift from God and I’m eter­nally thankful and feel blessed to be your Madre.

You’ve gone from a help­less 7lb 12oz baby to an inde­pen­dent, beau­tiful woman. Life has chal­lenged you in many ways  over the years, but I’m con­fi­dent you’ll always emerge tri­umphant because we tried to raise you to be resilient in the face of adver­sity. And never doubt that our love, sup­port (and guid­ance if you want it) is always there. Most of all, I pray you’ll keep strong in your faith and become every­thing you’re des­tined to be.

You’re a woman with many dif­ferent sides to your per­son­ality. And, although you wear the title of wife, mama, sister and friend.…



you’ll always be my first-born baby! Happy Birthday Army Wife/Peanut’s Mama! Hope your year is every­thing you’re dreaming it will be.
