Have I told you lately how THANKFUL I am for you? Your my first baby, my firstborn, my "trial baby". I have learned so much as a mommy as I have raised you. You have taught me even more about the kind of person I want to be. You are strong, inventive and very creative. You are excited to take on life and a challenge at any moment. Your compassionate spirit warms my heart just to be with you. Your helpful heart makes my life easier as a mommy in so many ways. I am especially THANKFUL for all your cheerful help on days like today when mommy is really sick and feels overwhelmed to take on the day. I am so glad that you have a never ending thirst for knowledge and a love for reading. Both of those will take you far on your journey to becoming a man. Your growing love for the Lord and your knowledge of Scripture inspires me in my walk each day. I am THANKFUL that you have seen your need for a Savior in your life and pray you will continue to walk with the Lord all your growing days.
Christmas is such a special time for us to celebrate the people we love and are THANKFUL for each day. I know how much I LOVE you and cherish your presence in my life.....I can't imagine the LOVE Mary felt for her first born Son, Jesus. I can't imagine how THANKFUL she was just to know Him and raise Him....knowing He was the Savior of the world....
I hope the message of Jesus's birth never grows old to you. I pray the LOVE story of our Savior's journey here on earth always remind you of all we have to be THANKFUL for.
I LOVE YOU my first born son,
