Happy Birthday, Matty!

Dear Matthew-

Oh dearest Matty, four years ago today God blessed our family with you. You entered this world, after one heck of a journey. We endured months of sickness together. Months of sickness that didn't matter the moment I held you in my arms. 

Over the last four years we have had many challenges, illness, and moments where I thought they were our last. But God has blessed us with another day with you. Today, your Birthday. 

I pray for you, sweet Matthew, daily. I pray that the Lord will help your lungs breathe, help your mind flourish, and help your heart love Him. 

You are turning into quite the young man, Matty. You ask intelligent questions. You are witty. You are charismatic. You are funny, without knowing it. You are sweet. You have a tiny temper. You love to build legos. You love to watch Star Wars. You love playing outside. You love your brother and sister. You still tell me you love me and want hugs, daily. I am blessed by you. 

Matty, may this year help you grow and become and even better young man. 

I love you, Buddy! Have a happy day and a wonderful year!
