It is hard to believe that 3 years ago today I met you for the first time (well not until 10:53 p.m. tonight, look for a special tweet around then). I remember it so vividly. I should have know then the effect you would have on me.
Your mother and you had a tough battle and one day I will write a better version of it, in fact I promise to have it done by this time next year. Where you and your mother went through physical battle, I went through one mentally. It was the longest hours of my life. At the end of it all, I was beaten down and waiting in a room to hear how it all turned out.
A nurse came in a asked if the father of Chelsea’s baby was here. She had to say it twice. I heard on the second time. I sprung up to meet you and it was like touching a live wire. I was completely energized. I probably could have ran a marathon right then and there.
That is the effect you have on me. When there seems like there is no grass, no light at end of tunnel, there you are. Your smile awakens me, your laugh makes grass seem greener, and hearing your voice is the brightest part of my day.
Your mom made me whisper a promise and write it down on a note to you while we were still in hospital. Every year on your birthday I add to it. I always have it on me and I will give to you either on your 18 birthday or your wedding day, I haven’t decided.
Between you and your mom, you have given me a purpose not only in my writing but in my life. Everything I do is because and for the both of you. I love you.
Happy Birthday My Little Monster!
