Garrett's Birthday

Our baby is ten! Garrett turned ten years old last month. We can't believe how the time has gone by.
We celebrated with his favorite meal: home-made fried chicken, mashed potatoes and green salad.
It seems like just yesterday you were born. Jessica just loved holding her baby brother, as did all of your siblings.
What a joy to hide and watch you run up to the Christmas tree when you were two, and hop onto this tricycle. You did not know I was watching you. I heard you whisper with delight, "Thank you Daddy and Mama," you knew it was us who bought the trike for you, and you knew it was for you, not your older brother and sisters. I cherish that memory.
You've grown into such a fine young boy, always helping Daddy set pipe in the field and with the orchard. We are so proud of you Garrett.
When we found out we were expecting another son, over ten years ago, it was a joyous surprise and happy blessing. God is so good to give you to us late in our lives.
Blessings, Kathi
"Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching. They are a garland to grace your head and a chain to adorn your neck." Proverbs 1:8-9
