Do you have a stepson whom you love so dearly and looking for special ways to celebrate his birthday with him?
Are you having a tough time getting ideas on how to make your stepson feel the love you have for him? Whatever be the case, worry no more cos this article has been written to give you ideas on how best you can celebrate your stepson’s birthday.
Firstly, I’ll love to share Mrs. Grace Hamilton’s story with you. She is a wonderful mother and has recently shared this story with me via my email. You could get inspired by her experiences with her stepson Jackson.
“I have a stepson named Jackson, I got to be his friend and new mother after his biological mother Christy sadly died of leukemia (blood cancer) in 2008.
Jackson was only seven years old when I met his father, Mr Bryson Hamilton. After some years, we fell in love with each other and got married in 2012.
Growing up, Jackson was very sweet and handsome but extremely stubborn. He never liked me or tried associating with me, he was always sad and loved his privacy a lot. One could call him a loner, but I knew he was only traumatized by the death of his mother.
After some years, with so much love and patience, I learned how best to win his heart and get him very close to me. I fell in love with the young lad and was willing to give him all the motherly love he lost after the death of his mom.
Gradually I was successful in making Jackson my own son. I also have three children, two girls and a boy whom I love so dearly but Jackson would always be my first love, for a reason I’m yet to understand.
Today, February 12th is his birthday and I want to do something special for him. He is actually in college right now, studying at Brigham Young University (BYU) Idaho.
Before now, I was having a tough time getting ideas on what I could do for him today. After much meditation and prayers, I got the best idea ever.
I pulled a call across him wishing him a happy birthday and later on told him I bought him tickets to fly down to New York, informing him we have a special birthday surprise for him. He was excited and agreed to come over.
After having a small family good time, I told Jackson I’ll love to take him to the cemetery to visit his late mother’s grave. I also told him I’ve got lots of flower bouquets in the trunk. Looking deeply in his eyes I knew he was very happy but didn’t know how best to express it.
We got to the cemetery where late Mrs Christy Hamilton was laid to rest. Jackson offered some prayers, while we dropped the flowers. It was then that Bryson confessed that he had always denied Jackson the opportunity of coming to the cemetery because he didn’t want him to get emotional or hurt. This means for the past 14 years, Jackson has never visited his late mother’s grave and has been traumatized by that. I was touched!
I realized that I gave him the best birthday gift ever when he hugged me tightly in tears and said “Thank you mama.”
Since that day, I began to see a whole different Jackson, he is now a happy-looking young man and that’s my joy.”
