My Shining Star

Do you know I have a shinning star? 
I do!
His name is Brandon! 
33 years ago today my life changed forever... 
I was given my first born.
A bright shining star,
 my son!
Our days were filled with adventure, just the two of us. 
 We had to make something special out of nothing at all,
 but we did it! 
And always, we were together.
But then as we both grew,
we walked down different paths...
To be honest,
there were days I was so scared.
I worried if I would ever see my little star shine bright again.   
Through prayer,
I believe he survived.
He found a beautiful little angel that has stood by his side
through it all.    
Brandon & Megan
are the true meaning of
 Happy & Healthy. 
They have fun whatever they do as long as they are together. 
Brandon is always there for his two sisters.
Their big brother pulls them up if they fall down
he always has a way of making them laugh. 
Larry's smile is bigger now than ever before,
 he is very proud to be Brandon's Dad! 
Happy Birthday to my shining star,
to my crowned king,
my Brandon! 
Here is a cake just for you!
I will be up later to have a rose & lavender soy smoothie with 
{your new favorite!} 
I am SO grateful everyday for the man you have become,
for the little boy that has always been there for me, you always gave me hope and taken care of me when I needed it,
 even though I was your Mom...
Thank you for my very solid golden forever friend I have in YOU,
for always knowing the exact right thing to say...to us all.
And for being my first born baby and making me the proudest
Mom that ever is.... 
I Love you Brandon!
Meganbug too!

  4. Oh Janet,
    What a beautiful post from a mother to her son and first born. Our son was our first born and is 33 in a few months.
    Your Brandon sounds like a wonderful, caring and kind man who is right by your side at all times and, of course, your husbands and his sisters and Megan.
    Wishing Brandon a wonderful day and many, many happy returns. I know that his birthday will be as special as the other 32 have been if you have got anything to do with it Janet !! XXXX

  5. Such a beautiful tribute to your dear son. I love how you wrote, my crowned King. My youngest son is there right now, walking down a different path. Although I'm hugely proud of him, he has become someone that at times I don't recognise. It's his choice in a woman and the choices he makes since they've been together. I think he too will shine bright again, I must be patient.

    I hope your son has a magnificent day. YOU sound like a truly magnificent mother.

    Congratulations to you both!
