It's hard to believe that Mason is 10 years old today. He's always been my little buddy. As a toddler he would stay close, very close, by my side. I never had to worry about him wondering off, or hiding in a store. :)
I love that he'll still hold my hand. On his field trip a few weeks ago he would grab my hand and walk with me. It melted my heart.
He's very sensitive. I know that some people don't think that's a good thing, but I would rather this than someone too tough to listen to his heart.
Many, many months ago at recess the boys he was playing with wouldn't include another boy. Mason noticed and told the rest of the boys that he should be able to play too. They wouldn't let him, so Mason chose to sit out of the game with this boy. I'll never know if this made a difference for the other boy. But I know Mason made a difference. He is aware how people are treated and tries to be fair.
I love you Mason!!! I hope you have a super great day!!
