Happy Birthday Mama | Featured on Beauty & Lifestyle Mommy Magazine

Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.

Julian Thomas Sousa...the third beautiful angel delivered into the Sousa Family. This post is vintage in internet news as he was born last year on May 19. However, I am choosing to share the birth story anyhow because today happens to be his beautiful Mother's birthday!!! And I would like to recognize her for her most recent accomplishment of bringing yet another gorgeous child into this world. Her compassion and attention as a mother and friend is unmatched. Jacquelyn Sousa happens to be one of my favorite people in the world and I hope today she is showered with love by her beautiful children (featured below and above) and all her friends and family.

This is my love letter to you Jacquelyn....I hope it conveys your presence in my life even when we are so far apart!! 

Jacquelyn,
You are one of the most compassionate, understanding, and uniquely sarcastic women I have ever come to meet. Your love for not only your family, but everyone you come in contact with is only surpassed by your love and respect for Jesus. Being a part of your life for the last 20 years (wow time flys) leaves me grateful everyday for having the chance to bask in your light. Watching you progress through life with optimism and empathy for all sorts of people made you an excellent daughter, sister, friend, wife, and Special Education teacher. Those same characteristics combined with your life experiences continually prove you to be a unique blessing to everyone that is lucky enough to cross your path. This is my love letter to you in 2016 and on your birthday....
I will always appreciate you for everything you do to make life better.... from high school notes passed to me on brightly colored index cards written in colored pencils with candy attached (from the backpack stash), to trusting me to paint brightly colored animals all over your nursery walls, to getting my address and sending me cards no matter where I am in the world, to videos of your kids singing me happy birthday or a new years eve countdown!! These small efforts amount to so much more than you could ever realize. So thank you today and everyday for being a special person and allowing me to be a part of your universe! I love you Peanut!! Happy Birthday!
