March 20, 1999 changed my life forever…..
This was the day my first child was born, I was only 19 years old. I remember so clearly when I found out I was pregnant at 18 how disappointed everyone was, how I had only just finished my 1st year of college, how I hadn’t even had a chance to be a young adult before I had to grow up so quickly. How worried and scared I was to have another human beings life in my hands.
Statistically my son and I weren’t suppose to make it. I was doomed to be a young single mom on welfare living in the projects and my life would be ruined forever! I remember one day saying to myself, this is not who I am going to be, I was going to prove them all wrong. The scorpio in me talking of course, lol!
Basically my son was the 1st real motivator in life. He pushed my in ways that even he doesn’t know about to this day! Everything I accomplished was because of him, he reminded me everyday, with his smile, laugh and hugs that we would be ok.
While I wasn’t the perfect parent, because no one is! My son has made it to a full grown adult! He turns 21 today, I still can’t believe it! Man we had some fun, rough and even sad times, but he has half of my heart, my 1st true unconditional love, the child who made me who I am!
I want to just thank the Lord for blessing me with my son, for watching over him and turning him into the man I am proud of today! I pray that his life is fulled with many more blessing and he accomplishes everything he sets out to do!
Happy 21st Birthday Son, I love you forever and always. Love your mom 😘
