Happy 14th to Emily

Dear Em --

Happy 14th birthday! You've had a great year and we are so proud of the person you are becoming. We've watched you take initiative and influence seriously this year and it's been a joy to see. You've served others in a few key areas this year and surrounded yourself with some good friends. For us as parents, that is thrilling.

The biggest example of that was in Aix this summer, where we pushed you to stick at it even when you weren't feeling well. Of course, later we found out you had mono. At least you got your blood drawn for the first time ever in another country.

Keep growing and making the right choices and pushing yourself to influence others in the right things. And make that dog obey me.
