While it is hard not to look back and feel a twinge of sadness as we reflect on how Samuel is growing up in what seems to be warp speed, it is with hearts of anticipation that we await each new day with this guy.
Samuel is a character, generally reserved, but when he is passionate about something, he is passionate. Samuel has a big heart for his siblings and all living things. Samuel loves big.
I'm thankful for how graciously he "shares" his birthday celebration with Lydia who will soon turn four. While these two have their moments, they generally share a great sibling relationship.
We pray for wisdom as we parent this special guy we get the privilege of calling son.
Happy 9th Birthday, Samuel! We love you!
