steph you continue to amaze me...you have no idea how proud of you for deciding to get baptized! but i am proud of you no matter what (as long as you don't murder somebody) and you continue to amaze me. you are a beautiful girl, both inside and out. and sweetie, your love for God really does shine through. you've gone through a lot of stuff in the last few years, maybe you don't even know all of what i have seen. but even through it all you are poised and together. thanks for all the great times and insiders (1 2 3 4 5 6 7...she spits, she snores, and she can't count!) and for all the times you have encouraged me and pushed me in my own journey. thanks for always being there with a listening ear, a sympathetic heart, and open arms. thanks for the shoulder to cry on and the contagious smile. thanks for always being there for me through the good and the bad. i hope i have always been there for you. friends forever...there's no way you're getting rid of me after all we've been through! happy belated sweet 16, and early congrats for baptism. you'll do fine, don't be nervous. trust God. praying for you always, and as much ♥ as i can give.
