Flashback FRIDAY - Happy Birthday, Tyler

It was October of 1996, when the Lord looked down on me and decided to give me one of the biggest BLESSINGS of my life. I often wonder what I ever did to deserve such a blessing; I'm sure it probably has more to do with Dan than me. The Lord picked one of His Extra Special babies and gave him to me to take care of.

In honor of Tyler's 13th Birthday,
here are a few fun facts about how great he is.

  • Every time there is a Holiday or Birthday, Tyler is always the one that spends time developing a special gift right from his heart. I carry this card in my little Bible wherever I go. He is just a very thoughtful individual, with a special heart for others:

  • He is just like his dad - which means he is PURE entertainment:

  • When he was younger, he spent most of his time standing on his head. He was actually obsessed with it, and would stay that way for hours, watching TV (upside down):

  • He LOVES Dogs - any size, shape, or kind.

  • He has a cousin that was born less than 2 weeks after him, and has spent every year with him at the same school, in the same grade - Blare.

  • When he was younger, he actually had one toy box for toys, and another toy box just for toy GUNS. He had 87 toy guns at one point in his life. Maybe he'll be a cop someday.

Thank you, Lord for blessing me with such a special kid. I know that I don't deserve to be the mom of one of the top-notch, extra-special kids, and I am extremely thankful to be blessed by his presence in my life!

Happy 13th Birthday, Tyler!!
