mine to love..

Some of you have been around on the blog and have heard me talk about my sister.
She wrote Hudson this amazing letter when he was only a few months old, and although she won't touch or even come near a poopy diaper, she continues to be such an amazing aunt to H.
It just happens to be her b i r t h d a today!
We wish we could be there to celebrate,
but I'm pretty sure she won't have a problem celebrating without us!
Anyway, This past weekend she sent me this link to a song I had never heard of before...

Dave Barnes: Mine to Love.

and at the end of her message she wrote..."this song is for Hudson".
Before I had even listened to the song, I was already crying...
and surprisingly I actually made it through the whole song,
but by the end I was a complete disaster...but in a good way.

I just couldn't help but think about how incredible it is what
 one person can do to your life...especially a baby?!
I never knew that power until I had H.
He has brought smiles to faces of complete strangers...
Made people love stronger...
He has answered so many prayers...healed so many wounds...
and continues to be such a "glue" for my family.

I'm so excited to see the relationship that Aly and Hudson form.
I can't wait for her to show him that life is truly beautiful, or how to be his best self...
and I can't wait to see the day that she actually changes his diaper!

Hope everyone had an amazing weekend!
