Happy Birthday Joshua!!

Today is a bittersweet day for me. I really should have used Joshua's birthday as my blessing for the day, but chose not to. Partly because it is bittersweet for me. The sweet part is that he is celebrating his 24th birthday today. The bitter or should I just say sort of sad part is that this will be his last birthday at home with us. He is getting married in October to a wonderful young lady whom we love. Yet, our nest will be empty unless God decides to give us more. Joshua is my gift from God. I gave up my right to children and God in His infinite love gave me this precious baby boy.
Happy Birthday Joshua. You are so loved!!!!!!
