Happy Birthday, Sammy!

Oh, Sweet Sammy. You're eight. And we are so proud of the delightful young man you are growing into.

I was thinking about you today ... happy and content, quiet and at ease. You quickly take responsibility for your actions, and you love to grow. You blend in well with our crazy family. But never think that you are anything less than completely precious to us.

You've always been a sweet and happy child, and it's been delightful to see you grow in areas of excitement. You're really starting to get the hang of school and you always try hard at whatever you're working on. Of course, you also love video games and Legos and Star Wars and you love sharing your passions with those around you. And we all love hearing about what's going on in your head.

You're sweet and tender with the little ones in the family. And you never forget to thank God for His kindness and to pray for those you love. Thank you for that. You always bless me with your prayers.

There's no denying the fact that you, dear Sammy, are growing up. We love you and we're proud of you. Remember your joy in knowing God's love for you, son, and remember His great sacrifice in sending His Son. As you keep your focus on Him, He will guide you and take good care of you.

Happy, happy birthday, Sammy! We love you!
