And then she blinked…

Once upon a time one blessed mommy had a very happy and beautiful son named Abner.  He had such wise old soul he knew how to be happy from his very first moments on Earth.  Abner was her first baby and she treasured him from the moment she felt him inside her.  This mommy could feel with every fiber of her being that Abner was a very special spirit.

And before you knew it the mommy was chasing the little boy around fields of imaginations.

Spring 004

Taking him for adventures in lands of pioneers, magic, space and oceans.

 Spring 005

And he was taking her on adventures of his own too.   They often would visit pirate ships and have sword or saber fights.

Spring 007 

Soon it was evident that the little boys wise old soul was beyond anything she thought possible.  He even taught himself to play chess at four years old, by watching his Pompa and Princely Dad play.

 Spring 008

Then before she knew it she was crying as her little blue-eyed boy went to school and she could no longer play the day with him.

Spring 006

and the mom blinked and before she knew what had happened her snuggly little boy had grown…

and grown…

and grown….

so tall that he didn’t quite fit inside his mother’s arms…

well kind of didn’t fit.

Dear sweet little boy Abner.  Your mommy is so proud of you as you graduate High School and can’t wait to see what direction you take as you begin this next grand adventure in your life.

Love you, my sweet pirate, wise soul of a son!

Your Mommy,

Wow, time does fly! Not too long ago I used to give him cracked wheat so he could be fast! He wasn't even waist high at the time was he?

Ohhh, Erik was talking about the picture of you holding him at lunch today, I was hoping there'd be a blog to follow!


He also mentioned that it's not just that you were able to hold him, but that you were able to hold the pose while he fiddled with the flash. You've got some serious arms going!

What a fun poem and sweet tribute! Hard to believe how quickly they grow up! My son graduated last year and just turned 19! Sniff, sniff.
