"You've had a birthday,
Back in the Day
I can't help, but mention Sam because it's his birthday. I'm thankful for Sam, "Little Boy" as Janna calls him. He's not little anymore. He's 15 today and still growing. I love this guy. He's a delight to the whole family. I appreciate his goodness. The best to you Sam!
Teenage time is coming of age time - transforming into an adult. As difficult as it may seem, it's one of the best times. I know - been there done that. I look at my adolescent and college years with happy fondness - in spite of my awkwardness, in spite of mistakes, in spite of all the drama and me thinking something was the end of the world. It was a great time of joy, learning, and growing. I know Heavenly Father was looking out for me. He was very much aware of me and as I grew physically; I grew spiritually. I observe your life Sam and look back at my own with happy fondness. I can better see and understand the love of our Heavenly Father as I have loved you. Happy Birthday!
