Wishing my cousins a happy 18th birthday, today. You came into this world early as fighters each weighing 2 lbs and under, spending the first few months in the hospital and now you are turning 18 and are continuing to show your strength and your resilience graduating from high school during a global pandemic. Such great stories and life lessons that you will be able to tell to your grand-kids, and you’re just getting started!
Behind you, all the memories. Before you, all your dreams, Around you, all who love you. Within you, all you need. Your strength is truly inspiring. Be proud and stand tall as you take this next step in your journey of life.
Happy Birthday, Casey, Brandt, and Jacob, and congratulations on your graduation!
