It's funny when you stop to think about your children. Cody was born with a kind heart and a giving spirit. It has helped shape who he is as a person. He is one of the kindest children God could have created for our family. He is patience in a storm and laughter on a rainy day. William in contrast is my Iron Will. He is the energizer bunny always on the go. As he has turned from baby to toddler I have also noticed he was born with a song firmly planted on his soul. He can take a dark day and sing it away. William has an appreciation for all music whether it be elmo, beatles, glee, or jazz and blues. I was looking back on our first visit to the OR the other day and one of the best memories I had was sitting in the pre-op holding room singing a song as he drifted off to sleep. Each visit to the OR has ended the same...William says mommy sing. The OR staff has always smiled as they watch a rather strangled voice singing softly to her baby boy as the Versed takes it effect. I have songs that are special to each of my boys. Cody was always "Good Morning Beautiful" and William was Martina McBride " Born to give my love to you".
I am reflecting on our next trip to Chicago. Two weeks and counting. I have to say it's been the song in his soul that has kept me going somedays. A year and a half of casting and no end in sight. With that said, I wouldn't change a minute of the song for anything in the world. I was born to give my love to my kids and we will keep singing through the storm...I think it will make the sunshine at the end all the more sweet.
