HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MALACHI!

image

LAST WEEK, OUR FIRST GRANDCHILD, MALACHI, TURNED EIGHT YEARS OLD.  IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE THAT SO MUCH TIME HAS PASSED SINCE HE MADE HIS ENTRANCE INTO OUR WORLD AND CHANGED IT FOREVER.  GOD HAS BLESSED US WITH THIS SPECIAL YOUNG BOY, WHO IS AN ENTHUSIASTIC BUNDLE OF BOUNDLESS ENERGY AND ZEST FOR LIFE.

MALACHI IS 95% HAPPY MOST OF THE TIME.  I RARELY SEE HIM IN A BAD MOOD.  HE’S FULL OF CURIOUSITY, COUPLED WITH MISCHIEF, AND A BRAIN ON HYPERSPEED.  HE’S VERY INTELLIGENT AND IS LIKE A SPONGE THAT SOAKS UP EVERYTHING AROUND HIM.  BUT HE’S ALSO VERY FRIENDLY, AFFECTIONATE AND LOVEABLE AND LOVES TO HUG AND KISS HIS SIBLINGS, PARENTS, GRANDPARENTS, AND HIS FRIENDS AND TEACHERS.  THERE’S NOT A BIT OF INHIBITION OR SELF-CONSCIOUSNESS IN HIM.  HE WILL SPEAK HIS MIND WITH NO RESERVATION.  HE EVEN TELLS ON HIMSELF IF HE DOES SOMETHING HE KNOWS IS WRONG.   ALTHOUGH HE KEEPS US ALL ON OUR TOES AND HAS STRETCHED OUR PATIENCE WITH HIS ANTICS AND SHENANIGANS, HE’S A GREAT JOY TO HAVE AROUND.  AND I HAVE DISCOVERED THAT HIS YOUNG SOUL HAS BECOME FIRMLY KNIT TO THE FABRIC OF THIS GRANDMOTHER’S HEART.
