Here I am again, celebrating the birthday of one of my precious children. This time my oldest. This time we are ushering in the teenage years. WOW!!! I can’t believe that he’s 13. Where did the time go?
As I reflect on his life, I am thankful that he was born before my father passed away. Boy oh Boy, did his Papa love him!! I truly believe that the Lord brought Wyatt into our family when He did so that my Daddy could know him. There are so many times, as Wyatt has grown, that I’ve thought and often said out loud, “your Papa Larry would be so proud”. As a mom, I am proud. My Wyatt is kind, like his Dad. He’s considerate. He’s helpful. He’s the BEST big brother. He loves the Lord and has a real desire for others to know God.
I hear tales of the teenage years being hard; I don’t doubt that there will be tough times, but I also look forward into watching my son grow and mature into the man that God created him to be. So today, I say Happy Birthday to my boy!
