#5 is now 5!

Shelbi you are such a fantastic young lady.

Your laugh is contagious and you light up any room you walk in to.

It is so awesome to be your daddy.

I love the way you come running to me arms wide open, squealing with excitement whenever I come home from work.

“You give me such joy.”

Love, Daddy

My beautiful grandmother, Laura Rains Hargrove, slipped quietly into eternity this morning as she slept. She was awesome! A woman of grace and humility and prayer. And the epitome of cool. She was a constant for our family. Steadfast. And she will be painfully and dearly missed. But we will see her again. Glory to God!

I love this picture of my grandparents:
