When I look at your sweet little baby pictures, they bring back so many wonderful memories. Sometimes I just look at the pictures and cry for the joy in life that you gave me. Right from the time you were a baby you had such spunk! Oh the stories I could tell!
You are definitley the Joker and the Prankster of the family. Life is never dull when you are around. You have a lot of laughter in you and a "little" mischeviousness. Oh all of the scrapes you have gotten into, from falling from your skateboard and knocking your teeth out before kindergarten to knocking yourself out on your BMX just before graduation! You have given us all so much fun ( and fear) through out the years! Life was never boring with you around and would never have been the same without you! You have added joy and energy to this family.
You have to be one of the most personable and lovable people. I don't think there has ever been a single person , that meeting you for the first time, has not loved you and continues to love you, from neighbors and church family, to people you have done "business" with ( lawn mowing, raking, snow shoveling etc.)(You are industrious and a hard worker, as are all of your siblings!) I have met up with people that have known you from years ago, ask about you and tell me over and over what a great kid you are and I have to agree with them. You are the kind of person that has never met a stranger and can establish instant repoire with people.
You have strengths you don't even realize are there!
When I think of you, I see raw untapped Potential with a capital P. As pastor King told you on your graduation day, You have a winning smile and can accomplish just about anything you put your mind to. How true that is.
I have watched you grow and mature over this last year in ways that you possibly aren't even aware of . Little thoughtful, unselfish things you do or say.
God has blessed you with a very quick and intelligent mind. I know I am rambling, but I wish I could convey to you how very special you are and what great strenghths you posess. You also have a very sensitive side that not many have seen, but I know it's there. I also know that God has His hand on your life and is directing you. When you and He finally come together, all I have to say is look out world, because it's gonna be great! You have charisma and leadership ability. You are strong and you are a leader. Let the love of God crowd out everything else and fill your heart and you will make a profound difference in the lives of others.
You have a Mom and Dad that love you , 2 brother's who think you're the bomb, and a sister that adores you and will not tolerate anyone dissing you!
I love you so much and I know the world is going to be a better place because of your influence!!
Love ,

You have grown into a man that I am very proud to call my son. you have grown and matured so wonderfully!
I love you so much. You don't know how special all of your hugs have meant to me over the years. All of the times when your sense of humor has lightened things up. All of the thougtful things you say and do mean so much to all of us. God sure did meet a need when He blessed this family with you.
You've always had the ability to make me smile. You have such a tender heart and are always so sensitive and caring.
The love for the family is formost with you. You are definitely a family man. Every one of us can count on you . We know that you will be there for us, no matter what!
You are a very trustworthy and loyal person. Make sure that your loyalties are always well placed. People will let you down and the heart can be easily bruised with a spirit like yours, but never allow it to harden you. Forgive and move on. Your lovingness (if that's a word is your trademark. Don't ever allow offenses to crowd that out. Always allow your sense of fairplay to work for you and not against you.
You have been such a blessing to Dad and you will never know how much that means to him. He needs you more than you even realize. You are an incredibly special person to all of us. I don't know what I'll do when you move out. You will take a part of the sunshine with you for sure. Keep yourself commited to God. Get as close to Him as you can. Get to know him. Follow his word and don't let people or situations interfere, but let every thing that happens, big or small, bring you to a place of knowing God, His word, and His ways, more clearly.
You are my sunshine and I love you dearly!!

Anna praying for her mom, Mindy. So sweet!

Last night was one of those services where God was ministering to people's needs in such a special way.
This was one of those moments that just have to be captured. Precious moments of life!

I love you so much! You have always been such an awesome son! You are my pride and joy! I know what your life has been. I have seen how you have handled dissapointment and trouble. It has always been God's way with you no matter what . Whether sunny or stormy weather, doing the right thing has been paramount. I know it will continue to be that way forever with you! God's blessings rest on you because of your commitment to him. It won't always be easy, but it will always be better with God than without Him, that I know for sure and then there is Heaven. There will also be many days of sunshine. Thank God for every one of those days and enjoy them to the fullest.
I just feel so special that God actually allowed me to be the mother of you! I mean that with all my heart! You are a son that many only dream of. Thank you for being who you are!

Just a thought...

The closer we get to God and the more at one with Him and His purpose for our life we become, the less we feel the need to impress other peaple and the more fulfulled we feel, because we are finding our worth thru His eyes and focusing on pleasing Him. It becomes less about us and more about the ones around us that are important. We feel much more content with our life and who we are when we start reflecting His word, His ways, and His glory!
This is not coming out right, the way I feel it so I think I'll stop now and get back to work!
Love you all!
