Dear Keagan on Your 8th Birthday

Dear Keagan,

So this is you turning eight--how can that be? I blinked between three and now. You are a delight to my heart, and though I wish these months and years would somehow slow down, I look forward to the unfolding of each new adventure to come. Right now you love jets and planes and all things World War II. You are comically smart, and you are determined to fill your mind with every ounce of learning long as it's interesting! 

You have been through so much since your last birthday, more than a lot of boys your age. You are strong and brave, and your courage helps me to find my own. You are precious beyond words, and you are mine. 

Today when we were walking out of church, you did something that I know you will all too soon outgrow. You slipped her sweet hand in my own, and you don't know it, but you made my whole day light up!

Your dad and I love to give you surprises, as you surprise us so often with your bright spirit and tender heart. You were our first gift from God, and I pray that you will never wonder if I'm still enamored by you. Because I am.

Happy birthday, sweet Keagan!

Love, Mom
Peace of Christ to you,
