Another Year, Another Prayer

It’s been 52 years now since I whispered in your ear for the first time.  That whisper was, “Happy Birth Day, sweet little boy”.

On October 5th of each of the last 51 years, I have whispered a short prayer in my heart.

On this 52nd year, I again whisper the following in my heart:

Happy Birthday, Allen Lee.

I pray that you are healthy.

I pray that you are happy.

I pray that you are safe.

I pray that you Believe.

I pray that you are loved.

I pray that you love.

Another Year Has Gone By

Happy Birthday, Allen Lee.

My thoughts are rambling tonight as I think about it being your birthday.  I pray that you are enjoying the day.  I pray that you are enjoying your life.  I pray that you are happy.  I pray that you are healthy.   I pray that God is part of your life.  I pray that you have been blessed with a wonderful family.  My biggest prayer is  that you have people who love you.  It is so very important to be loved.

I wonder if you ever think of me.  If so, I pray that your thoughts do not cause you pain.  I wonder what questions you have for me,  if any.  I pray that God has filled your heart with Grace and that you are confident that giving you up for adoption was an act of love on my part.  I pray that one day I will get to meet you and that I can tell you about the love that I’ve always had for you.  I pray that one day I can tell you about the 5 amazing days that I got to spend with you!

But, enough of that!  It’s your birthday!  Go eat some cake and blow out your candles.  Feel the love today.  It’s always there.
