His Midas Touch

Today is a shining moment for my family and I because Nicky received his first honor award from his school, Virgin Mary Immaculate. It is the second gold medal he received at VMI, which made Allan and I twice proud of his achievements as a preschooler. Nicky is everything I had ever hoped for in a son, and much more than I had prayed for – he is intelligent, loving, sweet, thoughtful, well mannered, well-behaved, polite, obedient and extremely affectionate. I cannot ask for a better child to be my son because Nicky is the Lord’s ultimate blessing to Allan and I. So today -- being his day of recognition and this week being his birthday week as well -- I dedicate this entry to him, together with a favorite John Lennon song which I lovingly sing to him often, to express just how much he means to me.

Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy)
by John Lennon

Close your eyes,
Have no fear,
The monster's gone,
He's on the run and your daddy's (mommy's) here,

Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,

Before you go to sleep,
Say a little prayer,
Every day in every way,
It's getting better and better,

Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,

Out on the ocean sailing away,
I can hardly wait,
To see you to come of age,
But I guess we'll both,
Just have to be patient,
Yes it's a long way to go,
A hard row to hoe,
Yes, it's a long way to go,
But in the meantime,

Before you cross the street,
Take my hand,
Life is what happens to you,
While your busy making other plans,

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Before you go to sleep
Say a little prayer
Every day in every way
It’s getting better and better

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Darling, darling,
Darling Nicky.

Awwwww....Your little boy wouldn't have turned out as he is had it not been for his parents. So, kudos to you and Allan for giving him guidance and direction...Should be an incentive to churn out more kids like him, ey, Peach? Hehehe...
