I’ve grown up with my little cousins being more like my brothers and sisters, than cousins. Today is my little cousin, Ryan’s, 17th birthday. He has always been such a happy and joyful soul to be around since he was born. I mean, he used to give himself a big bear hug as he laughed hysterically when he was little. So when I say he was always a happy kid, I mean it. Lol. Oh, and did I mention how goofy he is? I’m pretty sure goofy is his middle name.
He is a such a great example of a young person who loves the Lord and isn’t afraid to show it. He also loves Jordyn more than most could imagine a cousin would. I remember when I first bought her home to introduce to the family, and we all went to church that Sunday. People kept coming up to me asking “where is Jordyn?” to which I would respond “find Ryan and you’ll find Jordyn.” LOL. And sure enough, each time, he was usually in the middle of a group of people showing her off to everyone. He wasn’t too happy about having to share her with everyone else though haha.
Ryan, I hope you have a wonderful 17th birthday. I pray God blesses you to see many, many more, and I’m thankful I get to call such a silly and sweet soul my little cousin.
Happy birthday, Ry! We love you!
