Can we still celebrate life?

Can we wish him a happy birthday?

Because even in times like this one we still need to celebrate life🎂🎈🎉🎁 🥳 –

21 years ago a day like today at around this same time (I believe it to have been a Wednesday) I was arriving at the hospital to what was supposed to be a scheduled “induced labor” to bring this #BLESSING I get to call my child into the world.

After 16 long hours of what I would call SUCCESSFUL fail I ended up with a C-Section that marked my life for eternity. I will never be the same.

I thank God for you your life son!

I couldn’t imagine being born in times like the ones we’re living now, or in the ones you were born. I would’ve had so much confusion, so many questions to ask, research to do people to find, and my mind would’ve still been trying to figure so many things out.

I understand not wanting to do any of it all.

I thank God for your quiet personality as baby, as it allowed me to understand your silence in order to provide you with what you needed, your laid back character as a toddler-that always waited for me to give you an okay to make any move and always handed anything you had with so much respect. As a child you were always funny, had a great bubbly personality trying to make those around laugh, and see the colorful side of life. The teachers at school loved your respectful demeanor, and some elementary teachers still remember you for your great math skills…yet there was always a reason for complains from school (for clowning 😉).

I remember one of your quotes

“What’s the point of being mad, it’s a waste of time” — James Garcia

I honestly thought you were not capable of getting angry.

You have grown up knowing that thousands died innocently when some airplanes crashed the twin towers as an act of terrorism, yet not lived fully understanding much about it. Back then we were United as Nation by pain for fellow Americans.

You withstood the absence of your father to go serve what it may have seen in your eyes back then like a purposeless war as result of it (anyone gets lost trying to make sense of killing). Til this day you can see that separation taking place in your life in some form as you two try to get closer but duty always calls.

Now you get to see us all in the midst of a crisis as you’re emerging adulthood, fighting to be a World United as One.

The same world that went to war, and was fighting to be kept separated for so many years in many different ways, fighting to be culturally different and had become culturally insensitive to so many innocent people.

Now here we are fighting to survive a virus that has killed, and continues separating, so many, threatens to kill from the vilest killer to the most innocent child.

While some fight to stay alive, and others are still killing the innocent, yet great people like you are striving to survive. Don’t forget that being alive and living is not the same.

“Things will not change until people are healed, until a cure is found or until the process is over.” —Denise K

Your mind can’t sit still, you are gifted my child with a different mindset (you can do more than most of us can) that many of us couldn’t handle (and thanks to that I have never been able to sit still either).

That has kept me on my toes! I love you to the moon and back ♾ .

(Yes I cropped myself out)

You are one of a kind, you’re smart reserve, intelligent, analytical and I pray that God gives you wisdom to see and understand everything that you are enduring, and guide you to live wisely to serve Him and live to Your Full God Given Potentials❤️.
