Happy Birthday My Son!

45 Years Ago Today!
 John Marcus Day
John, there is so much I could say about you, but I will limit myself to a few statements.

You were God's special gift to us - our first child.

You brought so much love and affection into our home.

 You also brought a lot of energy, strong will, and busyness.

You loved to explore new things, and challenge the old.

And yes, you got into a little trouble along the way.

You had the most determination and drive to succeed.

Your positive outlook made it possible, when down, to always pick yourself up and pitch that fast ball again.
 Little did we realize then, those very qualities would make you the man you are today.

You gave us our daughter-in-love for whom we are so grateful.
 
 You gave us three amazing grandchildren.
 You have been a fantastic Dad!
 
 You have loved your beautiful bride for 20+ years and remain the true romantic.
 You look more like your dad every year.
But the thing about you for which we are most grateful is,
you have been the example of a Christ follower before your family.
We love you, John
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Mom & Dad
