I Often Sit and Wonder

The internet and especially blogging has opened up a whole new way to get to know people and read about their lives in ways it was never possible before. One of my newest blogging friends, Julie, also has a 7 year old boy who has special needs. Every time I look at her blog, Collins smile is infectious and you can't help but smile. Most of you know how I feel about my sweet Caleb and the joy he is in my life. Well, I was never good at writing poems in school but she wrote this to Collin and she said everything my heart would say if it could talk.

To: Collin
From: Mommy
I often sit and wonder
I often sit and wonder what you would say.
I have a feeling that you would talk for days.
Would you tell me that it hurts so bad,
Or would you say I love you mom and dad?
Don't worry my son I know what you want to say
You tell me in your own special way.
The way you wrap your arms around me tight.
The way you smile as we cuddle every night.
I often sit and wonder what you would want to be.
I have a feeling you would say I just want you to be proud of me.
A teacher, a great leader, a sales man or a fireman?
But there was someone who had a much bigger plan.
Don't worry my son I know what you were sent here to be.
A special gift to love and cherish just for me?.
No, you had a special mission from the day of your birth.
A special angel sent to teach of peace and love to all of us on earth.
I often sit and wonder how I can be so blessed
And If I am passing this very important test.
To love and protect someone so special and dear
To trust in God's will and trust that he is near.
Don't worry my son I will walk beside you every step
And when you are weak in my arms you will be kept.
You are my special angel and were sent to me on loan
But for all eternity a family we will be known.

SO sweet! I love that lil man!!! It is crazy to think that someone I am related to has a "pass" to the Celestial Kingdom--but Cabbie certainly does!! He is an angel!
