Perfect Moment Monday -- Labor on Labor Day

Each week I participate in Perfect Moment Monday, sponsored by the blog, According to Weebles, "Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect Moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between." And so, here is a Perfect Moment for this week. 

I can't believe it's been 15 years since I was pregnant with James, my oldest.

This picture shows me after a step aerobics class the Friday before he was born the following Tuesday.

Appropriately, I went into labor on Labor Day (I must have this thing about following the rules) and had him the next day.

Fast forward 15 years and he is thinking about driving...and girls...and music...and the wonderful things he has to look forward to as he grows up.

This is his special weekend. It's SO special that he typically has three days off to celebrate!

James is a wonderful young man and I am SO proud of him.

His birthday is a Perfect Moment and a reminder of a very special Perfect Moment that happened 15 years ago.

Happy Birthday James!

I am so very happy that you labored that day to bring James into the world.

And I canNOT believe he's 15!

You, on the other hand, have not aged a bit (and your waistline is MUCH better!).

This brought tears to my eyes. I just know it goes by so fast.

I will never forget receiving your news on our camping trip, then hustling over the mountain to meet my first (and favorite, at the time :) nephew. It is my honor to share my anniversary with such a bright and brilliant boy, becoming a man. He is a light in my life and I love him, AND his mom!

Wow, what a neat memory. I am still amazed at how fast my boys grow up.
