Happy Birthday Poem.
Every year since I’ve been with Micah, I have made him a slideshow for his birthday.
At the end of the slideshow I always read him some crazy poem I made up.
I figured the tradition must continue with Haddon!
so here is Haddon’s little birthday poem (a couple days late – it was a crazy weekend):
Oh Haddon, happy day sweet boy.
Today marks one year since your birth.
Besides your dad, you’re my favorite thing on earth
You have such a teachable heart
I never would have guessed that from the start
I pray He will make His face shine upon you
That I would care for you well too
You are a huge part of my mission
When showing people His great commission
You are my disciple little son
We’re running this race together and the fight has already been won
I’ve never worked so hard before
There is much work to do before you go out the door
I just love you so so much, come what may
I could smell your baby skin all day
You’ve changed me in so many ways.
I promise to love you dearly all of your days
Daddy and I strive to train and develop you in every place
Truly though, it’s only by God’s grace
You are His and not our own
In this life you are just on loan
Whether its 1 year, 20 years, or 63
I am so glad that God gave you to me
You are such a delightful child
The perfect combo of meek and mild
