Oh, Thank Heaven for Little Boys, Part 1

Day 2 of Debbie Reynolds' challenge to show thankfulness during these pre-Thanksgiving days. I thought I would share how thankful I am for my little boys - who aren't so little any more!  Meet my firstborn, Matthew...

The first most wonderful day of my life was the day that I was blessed with my first son. Matthew was such a wonderful, happy baby, an introverted little boy and I watched as he grew into a social butterfly in college.  As a young adult, he's been working for the same company for several years and has recently married and was just promoted and transferred with his job (to Florida).

Both of my boys returned to Charlotte to find jobs after college so, this is my 'empty nest' time with him settling into a new job, city and state, several hours away!  I'm hopeful that he'll eventually be transferred back to Charlotte but, for now, my husband and I will be planning more trips to Florida than ever before!

Oh, thank heaven for little boys!

Boys are a blessing, and they definitely give you a work out. One of our sons lives in Charlotte so we visit several times a year, really to see the grandkids, but I think he knows that. His dog Zero, she thinks we come to see her, always a great time. Sure you will enjoy your trips to Forida.

Debe, what a precious photo and the memories of when our children were little are priceless!  Glad you all have the flexibility to trek down to Florida, and I am certain Matthew and his bride will head north from time to time as well! :)

What a delightful little boy - and how proud you must be of him now as a young man.

Debe,  That is an adorable photo of your son.  They seem to go up in the blink of an eye. Before we know it our sons are adults, getting married and having a family of their own.  Such Blessings.

Jeff Dowler, yes, they do grow up far too quickly!  But, it is nice to know that they grew up to be wonderful human beings - mission accomplished!

Yolanda Cordova-Gilbert - Mine are 6'3" and 6'4" so, they're not so little anymore either!

You sound much like my wife, Debe Maxwell ... she LOVED her boys!  And now she LOVES her grown men.  We are so very grateful that they live close by and we get to enjoy the beautiful daugheter-in-laws and grandkids they have gifted us with.  

Hope you have many opportunities to see and love on them moving forward.

Gene

Thanks, Gene Mundt, IL/WI Mortgage Originator - FHA/VA/Conv/Jumbo/Portfolio/Refi  - there's something about little boys and their mothers, isn't there?!  I belive God knew what he was doing giving me boys - I don't do the 'drama' thing that my friends who had girls dealt with! LOL  Plus, I have more interests that they do - I LOVE sports so, it was the perfect fit having these two!

Hi Debe, I hope you get to visit often. That is one of the things best about running our own businesses, we set the rules and times we work.

That is too funny, Gene Mundt, IL/WI Mortgage Originator - FHA/VA/Conv/Jumbo/Portfolio/Refi - And, I have one daughter-in-law now and like, your wife, ADORE her!  Remember, we didn't have to raise them!  LOL
