Birthday Letter for my thirteen-year-old grandson

Dear Brad,
Happy Birthday to a very special young man we love. We feel so grateful to be your grandmother/father. We hope you know that we will always be there for you and that our love is constant and true. We are so proud of you for the life you are choosing to live and the good example you are for your younger sister and brother.
We notice how patient you are with Izzy and Daniel. They are so blessed to have you for their oldest brother.
We notice that you love to read. Reading is the best way to learn and discover the world of knowledge. As long as you keep reading, you will never be lonely or bored.
We notice that you have a wonderful smile. When we see you smile and notice that sparkle in your eyes it seems like the whole room lights up.
We notice that you have very good manners. You always say please and thank you.
We’re always so grateful to receive a Brad hug. You never forget to give us a hug goodbye when you come over.
We notice how you work hard in your schooling. We’re excited to hear about what you are working on.
We notice that you are a worthy priesthood holder and willing to do your duty with a smile.
We get so excited when we know we are able to spend time with you. We had fun camping with you this fall and going on that hike with the beautiful autumn leaves.
We notice how you are always willing to help with anything that needs to be done – like moving family members to a new place.
We notice you never complain and work hard and try your best at everything you do.
It has been a joy to watch you growing up and becoming such a fine young man.
Always remember Brad that you have a Mother/Father in Heaven who loves you.  Jesus Christ is your Savior and best friend.  Remember that your earthy mother/ father loves you. Never forget that you have a grandma and grandpa Baadsgaard that love you with all our hearts.
You are a treasure - and we found our pot of gold when you became our grandson.
Grandma and Grandpa Baadsgaard
