Dear Em -
On this day that you turn nine, we are again so thankful for you. You still love any and every kind of animal under the sun. And you still love a good beat and hear one that many of us can't recognize - but that's part of the fun of it, right?
This year, we've watched you grow into your role as a nurturer and encourager. We've seen you come alongside, assist others and walk with those that need a hand. For that, and for what that will do in the world, we are blessed.
Keep helping them - they need you. And to watch you help them, we need to see hope that acts.
[PS - Help Em celebrate 9 here.]
