Happy Birthday, Sweet Boy
Dear Thatcher~ our Boogie,
Exactly two years ago at this moment, you entered our lives... a little tiny screaming blessing- a gift from God. A gift you truly are. Through your life, we have learned how far our hearts can stretch. How much our hearts can ache when you hurt. How fearful our hearts can be when you fall. How full our hearts can feel when you say, "I yud ooo."
We never knew love so deeply. Every night, Daddy and I look at each other and say, "Man, I love that little boy." We may not be able to always give you the worldly posessions you may desire, but we pray you will ALWAYS know how much we love you. May you walk through this life knowing you are fearfully and wonderfully made. A gift from God. A gift your Mommy and Daddy treasured with all of their hearts.
We ask you all the time... "Do you know how far I love you??" and we answer, "I love you love you love you to the Moooooooon and back." But that's not true. We love you further than that. Further than we can even comprehend. May your life reflect love wherever you go. May you become a child after God's own heart.
We love you and hope you have a wonderful second birthday,
Love Mommy and Daddy (well- and Rudy, too.)
