Dear Luke Dawson,
You are 7 today! I can hardly believe it. I remember the day you were born like it was yesterday, when you came fast and furious into this world.
I want you to know how very proud of you Daddy and I are. You are different than any kid I’ve ever known and I just know you are going to do big, big things someday. Nobody influences the world by being exactly like it.
I am proud and in awe of your incredible mind and the way you can solve problems and remember everything. I wish you wouldn’t be so hard on yourself, though. I hope you’ll learn to give yourself some grace; room to make mistakes and the ability to see mistakes as opportunities for growth. It’s hard; I know.
But I do know you’re listening to your parents and you’re growing. Just this morning I heard you say to your sister, when you two were talking about if you could get 1,000 bounces on your new Master a Million bounce-counting ball in one day, “It’s going to be hard, but hard doesn’t mean impossible.”
And that’s what this life is all about, Luke. Never stop growing. Never stop learning new things or lose that amazing curiosity that propels your days.
Is life going to be hard? Yes, at times, it most definitely will. But you can do hard things.
When you were born, you completed our family. I never forget to thank God for letting me be your mom. You make me smile and laugh every single day and bring so much joy to our family. Thank you for being YOU.
