S: Hayden Schneider - With Love From Mom
2: I am filled with mixed emotions as I hold back all the tears, and with much pride, remember back so many years.
3: When I first held you in my arms, if only I had known, the years would feel like moments after you had grown. No longer a child though in my eyes I guess you'll always be the baby boy who changed my life and means the world to me.
5: Boys are beyond the range of anyone's sure understanding, at least when they are between the ages of 18 months and 90 years.
6: Spending time together has always been quality time, but because of
7: life's demands, there has never been enough time.
13: To a mother a son is never a fully grown man; and a son never bcomes a fully grown man until he understands and accepts that about his mother.
15: I saw that as you grew, nothing broke your spirit; instead, it strengthened you.
16: He who can be a good son will be a good father.
19: This was your "About Me" Introduction in First Grade. You were always excited about life!
22: You are a person of CONVICTION when the answers don't come easily. | A person of STRENGTH when others refuse to believe in you.
26: When you find success, there will be no one more proud than me.
31: Your sense of humor always keeps us laughing.
32: And you can bring us to tears | just as easily.
35: No matter what happens in your life, | I have confidence in your ability to make the right choices.
36: You are a person whom people respect, and so do I. I am so proud to be your mother.
39: You will find the key to success under your alarm clock - Use it wisely!
