When Theo was first hospitalized, a group of longtime family friends collected books to send to Theo in the hospital. Each book had a special message written to Theo and he’s been enjoying them ever since. Today before naptime, Theo chose to read a set of books in which the message is a poem written by someone who can absolutely relate to Theo’s fight (she has been graceful and strong in her fight, too, and she’s doing wonderfully). I feel like today, Thanksgiving, is a good day to share this with you, too:
Your beautiful eyes, so big and bright
Light up a room, in day or night.
Your smile is contagious, even without a sound
Showing how much you feel love from all around.
For you are loved by so many more than you know
From the top of your head to your perfect little toes.
You’ve touched hearts and made a difference here
Through all the smiles, tears, hopes and fears.
I pray and know that God holds your hand
As you hold our hearts, you precious little man.
We continue to be amazed by our little man. He is cute, sweet, smart, funny, strong and fiercely determined. He’s my best big boy and I’m thankful for him, his sister and brother, and Dada every second of every day. My husband and our beautiful children bring more joy to my life than I could ever explain. I hope you feel that joy in your life, too.
