Happy Birthday, Matthew! You’ve grown into a very fine man and yet, still our grandson! Grandpa and I love you very much. We don’t get to see you often enough. We know you’re busy working and living life! We would love to celebrate with you today, but it’s just not possible.
You are the one cousin that all the other cousins love to be around! There weren’t as many cousins at our latest family get-together last month, because of summer jobs. But the ones who were here still asked if Matthew was coming!
Heavenly Father, thank You for Matthew. He’s a fine responsible young man. Please watch over him, keep him safe as he drives and works and plays. Keep him well and healthy. Please help him remember that he is loved by You. He is a son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, friend, and neighbor. I love Matthew so much and You love him even more!
