C.J Turns 25

This is my son Clayton he turned 25 today. He was a Senior in high school in this picture, and had just been in a football game the night before, scratch on his forehead. I had him when I was 16 years old, and it feels weird to be 41 years old and to have a 25 year old. I have always called my son C.J. He is one of a kind. He has a heart the size of Texas and would give you the shirt off his back. He has a sense of humor like nobodies business and can make me laugh just by looking at me.
But, the thing I love about him more than anything is that he loves the Lord . He was ordained this past March. I was so proud of him. He never had it easy growing up either. He has had many trials that would break alot of people. But, C.J. is strong. I love you son. Happy Birthday, you make me proud. love Mom
