8 is Getting to be Such a BIG Number!

Happy Birthday, Chance!
.
Today is Chance's 8th birthday - my goodness, how did that happen?
.
Chance, you are turning into such a young man - often too mature and serious for your mere 8 years. I love that you step up to be the "man of the house" when your dad has to be out of town, but can still get on the floor and be totally silly playing with your little brother. You are a fabulous big brother, a caring friend, a helpful son, and a source of joy to our household.
.
I love you! -Mom

Mark Harris - Find Your Wings
.
It's only for a moment you are mine to hold
The plans that heaven has for you
Will all too soon unfold
So many different prayers I'll pray
For all that you might do
But most of all I'll want to know
You're walking in the truth
.
And If I never told you
I want you to know
As I watch you grow
.
I pray that God would fill your heart with dreams
And that faith gives you the courage
To dare to do great things
I'm here for you whatever this life brings
So let my love give you roots
And help you find your wings
.
May passion be the wind
That leads you through your days
And may conviction keep you strong
Guide you on your way
May there be many moments
That make your life so sweet
Oh, but more than memories
.
I pray that God would fill your heart with dreams
And that faith gives you the courage
To dare to do great things
I'm here for you whatever this life brings
So let my love give you roots
And help you find your wings
.
It's not living if you don't reach for the sky
I'll have tears as you take off
But I'll cheer as you fly
.
I pray that God would fill your heart with dreams
And that faith gives you the courage
To dare to do great things
I'm here for you whatever this life brings
So let my love give you roots
And help you find your wings
