Letters to my son’s

Listen and hear young hearts.

Letters to my warriors, my Son’s -

All of you Strong warriors, brave and loyal to the core.

Not only have we been blessed with 2 beautiful and brave sons, but because we have 2 beautiful daughters, we have been doubly blessed with 2 more sons.

My sons

It’s hard to believe you are all grown up with children of your own and I cannot imagine my life without you in it.

As I’ve carefully and prayerfully considered each of you, I’ve thought of who you are individually, to me and as part of this family.

Your family, my family, our family.

As I ponder and sit down to write to you, I have so many thoughts that come flooding into my mind. Just So many.

Starting with the Oldest:

Scott

When I think of you I think of Creative, determined, focused, loyal, humble, considerate, thoughtful, strong and persistent.

And When I think of you with your wife and your tiny daughters I think of Love and I think of Freedom. You have been blessed to be Free to do what you were created to do. And to be the Best at it.

I so much admire your commitment and loyalty to your craft and to your family (this includes your furry friends).

Ken and I prayed for you from the time our daughter, your wife was growing in my belly. We prayed for her husband, YOU.

And now, its’ incredible to know you were that one.

We’ve prayed for you your whole life.

And always will. Husband to our girl and father to our granddaughters.

EJ

When I think of you I think Strong, steady, brave, loyal, protecter, focused, smart, committed, disciplined and a willingness to grow in wisdom and knowledge.

And when I think of you with your wife, and your tiny children I also think of Love and devotion. The devotion you have for your family is admirable. You create a steady and a safe environment for your children, your wife and for others.

Ken and I prayed for you from the time our daughter, your lovely wife, was growing in my belly. We prayed for her husband, YOU.

We’ve prayed for you your whole life. And now, its’ incredible to know you were the one.

We’ve prayed for you your whole life. And always will.

Husband to our girl and Father to our grandchildren.

Seth

When I think of you I think Loyal, Creative, Strong, Fearless, Consistent, Steady, Kind, Tender-Hearted, Caring and a Seeker of Truth. And when I think of you with your wife as you prepare now for your own tiny warrior that’s coming, I think of Love and I think of truth. I think of how much you are like your Dad, and how I have always known you to be A truth seeker.

You are Always willing to go the extra mile to do the right thing. This is most admirable and necessary and so much like your own father.

I am surely confident and it gives me peace to know that you will continue to seek after truth with all of your heart.

Devyn

Perseverance, Loyal, strong, brave, determined, Independent, loving, playful and affectionate. And when I think of you with your lady and 2 tiny daughters I think of a deep love and a commitment that you have for the beautiful girls that you’ve been blessed with in your life. I admire your tenacity Devyn, and your strong work ethic that you have had from the beginning. You take your commitments seriously, just like your dad. Including your love and your loyalty for your faith and for being such a good provider for your family.

It’s these things that make me truly proud to be your mother.

To call you my son.

You have blessed my ‘Mother’ heart.
