"My Birthday's June 19"

This was a common phrase when Nathan was a little guy. He doesn't tell us this anymore, but for several years it was his favorite thing to say. Today he turned 18. Wow! Where have the years gone? Yesterday I had a smiling two year old, baseball cap on his head, hands in his pockets. What a wonderful little boy he was. He is every bit as wonderful today, just slightly larger... As a baby he was enthralled by music, now he makes his own. A few years ago he learned to play the guitar and now he is teaching himself to play the piano. Music is his passion. I wonder where it will take him someday?

Happy Birthday, Nathan!


  1. Happy Birthday, Nathan! My Joseph used to do the very same thing with his birthday...then Samuel used to count down the days, starting when there were over 100 to go...."only 76 days to my birthday..." Kids really are precious....and they only get better with age.

  2. Happy Birthday from me, too!
    You sound like a great guy!
    May God continue to bless you.

  3. Blah, blah, blah. What's with all this mushy happy birthday stuff?

    Okay, okay. I love you and wish you a wonderful, happiness filled 19th year. Be cool and twist and shout.

  4. Okay!! happy Birthday Nate. This is going way to fast.
