Sweet Cole. You are such a bright spot in my world. Your joy for life makes me smile and makes me feel joyful too. I love how you know so many facts and so much trivia. I love how you devour books and love their characters. I love your creativity. I love how hard you work on important things like Bible verse memory. And I love how you want other people to feel special. You are a great explorer, observer, and appreciater of life. Your love of Lego collecting and building amazes me and makes me happy. So does your obsession with Adventures in Odyssey :). I wouldn't be surprised if you grow up and create things like that for kids one day. I am so grateful for you! I hope you have a wonderful day. Happy birthday. I love you!

My translation: "Um, Deleise...when you get finished with your planning and figuring and fretting, why don't you just kick back and relax and let me take care of things. Seriously, it's sweet of you to want to help but I've got it completely under control."
Oops. Sorry God...again.
