Happy Birthday To My Terry
Once again the calendar
Has slipped into September...
An occasion meant to celebrate...
A time to just remember
The day you made your entrance
Into my startled world...
I was not at all prepared for you
I expected one more girl.
Girls were so predominant
In your father’s family...
And, actually, in mine as well,
So you really surprised me.
I brought you home in frills and lace...
I just never stopped to think
That I might wrap a man child in
All those pretty shades of pink.
Happy? Thrilled? Of course I was!
My heart was filled with joy!
I still recall the doctor's words,
"Smile, Mama, it’s a boy!"
This was so many years ago
Yet it seems like yesterday.
I love you very much, my son…
Have a great, God blessed birthday!!

2 Timothy 3:15
And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures,
which are able to make thee wise unto salvation
through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow
because her hour has come, but when she has
delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the
anguish, for joy that a human being has been
born into the world
I don't care how old you get to be...you'll always be my baby.
