Happy Birthday, Tyler! The big 21! I’m so proud of you! I’m proud to be your grandma! Oh okay, I know I’m not your real grandma. I’m your step-grandma. I first met you when you were only two years old! You probably don’t even remember this…we had to kept changing my name with you! First I was Mrs. Archer. Then we changed it to Ms Anita. Then Rob and your mom, Jessica, got married and so we changed my name to Grandma! I’ve been Grandma ever since and I’m proud of it! We don’t see you very often any more, but we keep up with you as much as we can. Texas is a long way away! We know you’re preparing for youth ministry and it’s exciting to keep up with the latest news about you. I wish for you today a very special happy birthday!
Heavenly Father, thank You for Tyler. He’s a young man seeking to follow the path you have laid out for him. Please keep him safe and healthy as he travels, studies, works and plays. I love Tyler so much and You love him even more.
