I can't believe you are 12!!
I can't believe you are almost taller than me (like seriously...we only differ by maybe a centimeter...or I might be in denial that you are actually taller)!
I can't believe you are entering teenagedom...you are definitely a TWEEN. No doubt...for sure!
I love you son. I am so proud of you and that incredibly giving, sweet heart of yours! You have grown so much over the past year..physically and emotionally. I pray you will continue to grow spiritually over the next year. I want you to be an influence on those around you. This world is FULL of the wrong influences, and I want you to shine bright as a light for Christ.
I love you Bubba, and now I must ask you to stop.GrOwInG! Please!! ;)
Thank you for being so helpful around the house, for wanting to play trombone/french horn duets with me, for still wanting hugs and kisses at bedtime, for wanting to be a part of our youth group, for stepping outside your comfort zones, for loving the Lord.
