Recently, two people have commented to me regarding my February birthday buddies and I thought that the quotes kind of exemplified those two people that I’m lucky enough to be living with. We’ll let them speak for themselves:
About Emma, who turned into a TEENAGER on February 12th, her Young Women’s leader said “That girl has everything I would want in a daughter.” (Aren’t I lucky, that I get that girl for my daughter?!)
And on February 28th, when Ryan’s sister Heather came over with birthday wishes and presents, she related the following conversation that she’d had with her daughter Courtney, age 5:
Heather: “What should we get Ryan for his birthday? What does he really like?”
Courtney: “Well, he really likes kids!”
(It just speaks volumes that that was the first thing she thought of…he’s always taking time to pay attention to, and interact with, the kids in the room. He is fun and gentle and aware of others.)
WE LOVE YOU, RYAN AND EMMA!
