6 years

It's amazing to me what time can teach.
6 years ago today I was already headed to the hospital to meet our son. 
Uncertainty and the unknown weighted heavily on us, excitement and happiness were there but they were tempered. 
Today I sit and type without a worry for him as he rides his new scooter around the living room...
celebration laps dedicated to being 6.
We didn't know 6 years ago the vibrant light he would bring. We prayed for it, oh how we prayed! 
We couldn't imagine the laughter that this child would bring each and every day. We wished for it though. 
Never in a million years could we have guessed how amazing this little man would turn out to be, but oh man... 
He is ever amazing!
Excitement is no longer tempered where this kid is concerned, he doesn't allow it. 
Matthew Ray has taught us to smile first before all else. 
He pushes us to find happiness and his caring nature never wains. 
He leads us to giggles and laughter more than not and always gives comedic relief in the mostly timely fashion. 
God knew this boy's plan before we did. 
Even when we were faced with struggle and uncertainty in his coming to be, God had this little boy's hand... 
His name said so, Matthew: Gift from God.
We have learned to trust in God's plan more because of who he is growing up to be, and who we have grown into being by just loving him.
6 years can teach a lot.
We love you to the Moon and back, Matthew Ray...
forever and always!!
