Happy 7th Birthday William!
The Love family is blessed with five beautiful children and seven years ago TODAY William Lawrence Love entered the world and all our hearts. If you’ve met William, you know he has one of the sweetest spirits on the planet. He loves to help others, is thoughtful and caring, and his favorite thing to do is clean (seriously!).
While life has been in a bit of turmoil lately, we are all doing our best to keep life relatively normal for the Love children and celebrating William’s birthday is an important part of that. He will be spending the day with his cousin, Jonah, which he is very excited about! And as family tradition dictates, William gets to choose the menu for the day and Aunt Marni has already taken his requests for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
William understands that his birthday is a bit different this year and, though it is hard on him, he is handling it with great fortitude. At the hospital on Tuesday, William turned to Christina and told her, quite bravely, that he understands she may not get to spend his birthday with him because it’s very important that she stay at the hospital with Emily and he’s okay with that. His selfless declaration brought tears immediately to Christina and Auntie Elisabeth’s eyes.
While many of our prayers are focused on the healing of Emily, it is also important to lift up the entire family in prayer as they face the many changes to their life that Emily’s diagnosis has and will continue to bring. Today we ask you to celebrate the blessing of William Love by thanking God for this handsome boy and praying for a joyful day, full of laughter and love.
