(Click on collage for bigger image)Happy 14th Birthday to my Forrester! I cannot believe how time flies. It was just yesterday I was holding him in my arms, and now I look up to him when I ask him take the trash out! My heart is so full of joy. Forrest is really growing leaps and bounds physically, emotionally and spiritually. I feel that one of the blessings of me being back in the home full-time is rediscovering my family. I felt Forrest and I were growing apart and now, I can't keep us seperated! Our relationship has strenghen beyond description as well as my relationship with Sadie and George.
When I found out I was pregnant with Forrest, I just knew I would have a boy. I didn't want a girl. I was a tomboy by nature and what would I do with a girl? (I would soon find out three years later with Sadie!) George wanted to have a "Junior" and I was totally against it. I have always loved the name "Forrest" and since I was the one getting fat and ugly having this baby, I trumped the junior name! I did comprimise with him and allowed "George" to be the baby's first name. I added the "er" on to Forrest (after the Forrester's on the Bold & and Beautiful-lol) and so at 2:10pm on August 8th, 1994, I was holding a beautiful 9lbs, 7 oz. baby boy named George Forrester Walker.
Forrest has brought us so much happiness to our lives in these past 14 years. As a parent, I have stretched beyond physical, emotional and spiritual limits raising this boy and would do it all and more again if that is what it takes to mold him into a righteous young man. Words cannot describe the love I have for him and the desire to see him succeed in both this life and the life to come. Happy Birthday Forrest! I love you, Mom
Now that I'm done with the "mushy-mommy feelings" about Forrest, I would love for you to comment about any encounters/relaionship you have had with or to continue to have with Forrest (in the past, present and possibly the future!) Thanks!
I'm finally moving towards owning my own painting company, after wanting one of almost 25 years. I've been gaining experience of painting for others for years, which I've truly enjoyed. I'm back in school, earning another degree, but this time in Business. By having the knowledge of the behind the scenes in business, I feel I'll have a greater advantage in direction I'm headed. I look forward to overcoming obstacles and moving toward my goal of being a successful business owner. The purpose of the blog is to track my progress, from overcoming my fears, to tracking my successes.
