The Bugg turned six in May.
We celebrated the truly awesome, perfect & wonderful
boy that he is with a family outing.
A picnic, the Aquarium, &
Leatherby's for a giant banana split.
We had a blast.
No presents. Just presence.
Such a big boy.
There were many heart-breaking days for me
when he was a baby.
I was consumed with "what-ifs"
& questions about his unknown future.
But his smile & glow have been ever faithful.
Never has he let me down.
Always, always will he give me love.
Full of love, life, & joy.
This boy of mine still cannot say a single word.
Take a single step.
Or do anything for himself.
He inspires me to be my best self.
To live more simply & joyfully.
To reach out to others.
To have gratitude for my blessings.
To have charity.
Bugg helps me to remember my Heavenly Father.
That we are all His children & He loves us so much.
Thanks, Bugg. You are awesome.
