Happy Birthday, Andrew! My first grandchild! I’ll never forget the day you were born! I’d never had the feeling before and never quite had the feeling since! The feeling of pride and joy! I was a grandma! Oh yes, I was given 14 more grandchildren, of whom I love with all my heart! But I’m talking about that first elated feeling of pride and joy! That was 29 years ago and I still remember the euphoric feeling I had when I was told over the phone!
Earlier that day I had the distinct feeling I should pray for Pam (your mother) and I did. Then later, we got the phone call, saying you had been born that day and I knew why I had prayed for her!
Heavenly Father, thank You for Andrew. Please watch over him as he works, drives, plays, interacts with family and friends. He is a son, grandson, husband, brother, nephew, cousin, friend and neighbor. Help us to hear from him soon. I love Andrew so much and You love him even more.
