Happy Birthday Graeson!

Graeson, today you are FIVE years old!
You have brought so much joy and laughter to our house, I can't remember what we did for entertainment before you were born.
These past five years have been so much fun! You add a spark (and sometimes an explosion) to life that can't be missed.

You make friends with everyone you meet, from kids to grown-ups, and you have so much love in your heart it just has to overflow to others.

You may someday be a politician with your ability to passionately "debate the issues", or you may be a rock star with your unending love of guitars.

I hope when you're a teenager you still want to cuddle with me in the mornings, and pray with me at night.

I hope your blue eyes (the ones that can see in the dark!) see past outer appearances and into the hearts of others.

I hope you never lose the abundant energy that you wake up with the minute your feet hit the floor.

Most of all, I hope God uses you in amazing ways, to reach people who need more of what you, laughter, excitement, happiness, and funny faces...and that you will follow Him the rest of your life!

We love you so much! My heart swells and my tears overflow just thinking of you.
Happy birthday five year old!
