Eighteen

“Instruct the wise, and he will be wiser still; teach the righteous, and he will learn more.” Proverbs 9:9

Eighteen years ago you arrived and I have been admiring you ever since. Your perseverance in all things speaks of your character and your kindness to others reveals your heart. Hard work is just something you do, no need to be reminded. You can make us all laugh and have brought so much joy to our family. Humility is something I have heard you pray for often and the Lord has answered your prayers, it is evident. Perfection is not the standard here, relationships around the table hold far too much value. You are investing well and this too makes me smile. Every kid needs a big brother like you.

So today on your eighteenth birthday, I want you to know how grateful I am to be your mom. I love you unconditionally and pray you remain teachable all your days. May you be known for wisdom and righteousness all your days as you walk closely with the One who made you.

Happy Birthday Jackson!
