Fifteen...

Fifteen years old...
Where has time gone?
My first born.
My first experience as a mother.
I was so young...
I read every book.
I asked every question.
I researched.
I took classes.
I took on motherhood without looking back.
I was determined to give you everything you deserved.
Everything I received as a child.
Despite the obstacles,
I finished college and walked across that stage
while you, only 3 months old, lay sleeping in the audience.
I was so proud to be your mother.

Now our relationship is changing.
You're entering a whole new chapter in your life.
One day soon,
I will no longer be the apple of your eye.
Some other little girl will take my place.
It's my job to let you grow up,
but you'll always be my little boy.
You'll always be part of me.
I love you, Austin.
I am so proud to be your mother.

Happy birthday...
