Birthday Interviews 2016- The Oldest Son.

His birthday is today.  He's 21.

T-W-E-N-T-Y-O-N-E!

My firstborn son is legal.  It seems weird because I often forget how young he is - he's getting ready to celebrate his second wedding anniversary. He is a great Daddy and husband and he continues to learn and look for ways to grow himself.

He is proof that God gives us good gifts-more than we can ask for. I still get excited every time he walks in the room, and watching him with his daughter(s) brings more joy than I could ever have anticipated.

Here's what he had to say....

If you had one wish what would it be? To have my dream home already paid for.  I don't mind working and don't care about being rich, but to have a home for my family without stress of paying the mortgage.   

So, just like I missed his "first ever" touchdown because I was out of town, I'm missing his 21st Birthday for the same reason-  I'm still in Texas so we'll be celebrating when I get home.  Shayne, please don't hold it against me.


I love you so much and your Dad and I continue to be proud of the man you have become. I pray that you always seek God and love your wife and girls as well as you do today.  

When I sing/tell you that you're my sunshine, know that it isn't just a silly song to annoy you- but truth. 

Thank you- because of our morning chats and coffee while I get ready for work, I no longer dread stressful morning routines but actually look forward to starting my day.  

Happy 21st Birthday, Shayne! 
You are so loved. 

Happy Tuesday from Texas y'all!
