Christopher

39 years ago today a boy child came into my life. He was all wrinkled and beautiful and rubbed a big blister on his nose while in the nursery at the hospital.. He was a hoot when we brought him home............... Today he is the love of my life along with my wonderful hubby Dennis. Christopher has a kind and forgiving heart and he has stood beside me all the years that I messed up my life and his. He forgives easy and he loved deep. He lives here in town close and that does my heart good. He is a police officer and has been for many years now and he is a good cop. I pray for him daily...... Happy Birthday Chris............ You are a good son.............I know that for your faithfulness to me during those hard years that God is going to bless you above all that you can imagine....

Love Mom



Philippines 1971 Christmas Day........... Chris and his brother Darryl


Latter that day in the front yard......... Beautiful weather......

Christmas 1974............. Look at those stripe pants on Darryl......... I was a bad mother! hahaha


School years ! Those are just priceless............... I remember that little shirt like it was yesterday..
School Days, school days, dear old golden rule days..................



Easter Sunday 1976, I think.............. They did look sharp !





NOW, ALL GROWN UP..........

My wedding day............ Chris was my witness....... he is on the right side of the picture and Darryl is on the left.......

Christopher the police officer........... I am sooooooooooooo proud...........
His brother Darryl will turn 43 on Wednesday 10th. We have not seen him in 4 or 5 years now..... I forget............ I miss him............. One day I will get to hug his neck on his birthday... I am believing God..............

Thank you for allowing me to visit your family, I love the pictures and by all means you should be proud, boys always love their momma's no matter what, I know my does, he just acts like he doesn't, but after all he's 16.....my son is a blessing straight from God, seriously. Have a blessed Sunday, we've been blessed in so many ways already!! Haven't we!

Well from what I am learning about Moms raising sons, your Christopher will be faithful to his wife. I'm guessing he is waiting and looking for just the right one.

Happy birthday to Chris.
He sounds like a wonderful son.
I can see why you're so proud of him.
I love all the pictures....and the striped pants were in style. I remember seeing my husband in pictures with those on too.
I'm also believing you'll get to hug your other son's neck one of these days.

Happy Happy Birthday!! Your boys are so handsome! Tell Chris to be careful out there. I come from a long line of police officers so I know the worries involved and the sacrifice they make.

BTW, my roots are English and Irish but never lived in England....so....ta ta! :)

Happy Birthday a little late!
I know you are proud of him....I am so glad that God has made a way for ya'll. And I know God will continue to work things out with the other son. Sometimes it just take time.
As Moms we just have to stand on His words when our sight is telling us different.
Bless your heart...keep giving and loving.
