A Special Day

Birthday Banner

Today is a very special day in our family.  This is the day we celebrate the birth of our first-born.  Our son came into the world and into our arms thirty-eight years ago – a day that never gets lost in my heart!  We were so proud of him we thought we would burst.  Our pride in him grew as he grew and today he is an incredible man who makes us stand a little taller with pride as we see how his life makes a difference.  He touches a lot of people with his great big heart!  Mr. J. – we love you.  Happy birthday.

As if that wasn’t enough for us to wrap our hearts around on this day each year, God blessed us with our beautiful first grandchild fourteen years ago today.  On the same day we celebrated Mr. J’s birth!  Our hearts grew a bit bigger and our heads swelled a bit more with pride.  She's the delight of our hearts.  She’s grown up so fast.  Where did the years go?  Wasn’t it just yesterday that she was learning to sit up and smile in a way that stole our hearts?  We love you bunches, Miss A.

We are blessed!
So blessed!
