Dear David

Dear David,

Today you turn 11. I don't know where the time has gone, I just know that it has gone way too fast. It seems like just yesterday, we were getting our first glimpse of you. My 18 hour labor began in the wee hours of the morning.....and I remember sitting in the rocking chair and crying, because I knew that once you arrived, it would be my job to nurture you and prepare you for a life all of your own. At 11 , you're not quite there yet, but you are well on your way.

What a joy you have been in our life! We are so proud of who you are.....of the character that we see inside of you. Honest, kind, compassionate, diligent, obedient. These things alone will take you far in life! Also, we love that you are so careful in who you choose to be your close friends, as it seems you are already aware of the effect that relationships can have in our life. You know that those who make good choices, will encourage you to do the same! It blesses our heart when we see you reading your Bible all on your own and we know that you are sensitive to the Lord's leading in your life.

We are completely proud of you......and want you to know that we always will be.....just because you're our son. I can't wait to see what the next 11 years will bring!
