Yesterday was Micah’s birthday. My little guy will always be my little guy, even if he reaches above me in height. To realize that he turned nine and is starting his tenth year outside of the womb, really makes me feel okay, but at the same time I think more about his future and the decisions he’ll one day make. Will he make good choices? Will he one day regret anything?
Micah loves to draw, build with LEGOs, play Minecraft, and running around barefoot everywhere. He really has the ability to instantly make friends and yet he hates being the center of attention. I admire his giving heart and kindness towards others. He always likes to learn about other people and consider them over himself. I am starting to see how much he is growing. I am really proud of him.
Sometimes Micah gets a little moody and is let down easily, but other times he accepts things easily if they don’t go his way and he makes the best of things. I enjoy seeing this positive attitude. He is a very silly one and makes us laugh. He’s a good kid.
He is learning more about the world around him and is learning about the hardships others endure, while understanding how blessed he is and how he can share that with others. He is starting to pursue God more. I hope he’ll always ask questions and never stop pursuing the Truth.
I am glad we were able to give him a great day and celebration yesterday.
