Happy Birthday to my son “Jayden” He is now 10 years old!!! Wow! How that time flies by so fast.
I see that saying is true… “time waits on nobody” and it’s so true. Feels like I just had him. Soon, my son will be 15 years old and I don’t think I’m ready for that. (Haha)
I actually started this post early yesterday, but my son’s dad and I brought cake and ice cream to his school and brought him to eat out at his favorite restaurant. Saturday we’ll go to laser tag or the trampoline place (depends on what he decides) since his birthday was on a school day this year. So yeah… like I was saying, I actually started this post yesterday but I got so busy with it being my son’s birthday.
On December 18, 2009 I had a handsome baby boy name Jayden… since than he’s been my miracle, and the reason I mustn’t give up. My life wouldn’t even be “life” without him. 10 years ago I had a son who was born 2 months early and only 2 pounds… Not to mention I was in the hospital for 2 months before having him with me being so high risk (and man was I mad haha, having to stay in the hospital and that long at that). But it was all worth it, going to the hospital/specialist just about every week, (this is before I got admitted in the hospital for 2 months) being on bed rest, being sick, the shots I had to get almost every week, the pain of labor and going natural without a epidural shot, and having to leave him in the nicu for 6 weeks.
I felt so incomplete when I got released from the hospital to go home. Than to go home without my son I felt so blue, in other words despondent.
Losing my daughter took a toll on me and I actually believe God knew I couldn’t handle losing another child. And I’m so thankful that my son is alive and well, because just like with my daughter, I was also very high risk pregnant with son also. After losing my daughter who’ll be 14 years old right now, I was scared when I got pregnant with Jayden 7 years after. When they told me I was pregnant, I was very scared because of what happened with my baby girl, Well…. I was so excited about me having a little girl, I had brought plenty of clothes and all for her and to lose her was the worse day of my life.
I said all that to say this… Jayden is my miracle baby and to see him make 10 is truly a blessing because of all that he (we) went through it’s a huge blessing and also a miracle. I’m so happy he enjoyed his birthday and gifts. He deserves it all, because he was born so small and not all the way developed. But today… he’s active, very smart, talented, creative, and last but not lease he’s very handsome. 🙂 Our birthdays are right by each other. I almost had him on my birthday.
Now I see how my mother felt having me in December and Christmas in the same month. (Haha) I 100% see and now understand what her and my father meant by saying “you’ll get 3 gifts for your birthday and the rest Christmas.
Happy Birthday to Jayden once again!!!
Also, good evening to you all. 🙂 I hope everyone is having a great/blessed Thursday. And Happy Holidays to you all and your families. I’ve been being so busy myself, but my day went well. I can’t complain at all.
But if you’re having a bad day, and it feels like nothing is going right or your way…. always remember that good things take some time, it won’t happen like magic but keep believing and praying. And never give up or yourself or your dreams. Also, always remember that you are beautiful inside and out… and there’s nothing you can’t accomplish. Not everyday will be a good day, but don’t let those days get the best of you. Let nothing or nobody still your joy.
