Happy Birthday, Brendon!
She came home that night and said I met the most amazing man at the MTC. I hope he calls. So you called and she said yes to your date request despite the fact she all ready had a date. She knew she had met someone quite remarkable and didn't want you to slip away. And the I watched the spirit take over like magic. She worried because she talked so much on that first date because you asked her questions about her mission, her passions, her dreams. You listened. She found out about you and how much you love this country and Slovenia but most important that you put God first. You said things to her the every woman wants to hear and you meant every word. And you still do. You do not boast nor bring attention to yourself. How many dishes did you do on Sunday? How many times have I caught you folding the wash when we skyped? Thank you for entering in our life and our hearts. Your tender love and strength in facing the challenging news of Mary Deane's CF gives me courage to move forward with faith and hope in God's plan for us. How blessed she is to have you as her father. And how blessed is Ann and Mary Deane to have you forever! Happy birthday. I love you!
