Happy 11th Birthday James

Why God Made Little Boys
(author unknown)

God made little boys in a wondrous dream of man.

Gave them strength, courage, dignity and will.

And the curiousity to seek new horizons, to sail, fly

Reach for the stars.

God loves His boys for their spirit and pride.

He watches over them as they grow

For it is through the miracle of little boys 

That mature man is realized

And in their hands He has placed 

The future of all living things. 

I have this poem hanging on my wall to remind me everyday about the blessing of boys. James is my miracle child, a beautiful blessing whom we will treasure always.   You see, I never really thought we would have children.  When Father was 17, he was electrocuted while working on a Marshall amplifier and thrown across the room.    I always had it in the back of my mind that there was the possibility we would never have children.  I was proved wrong, fortunately. God blessed us with one.   James - our one and only beautiful, inquisitive, smart, precocious, spirited, loving boy. 

Happy Birthday James!!!!
