Hi Sweetie,
I hope your day goes just as you have planned it. You are always in my heart and on my mind.

A letter of love to my son
Lieutenant Colonel C.R. Carter USAF

Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
KJV Proverbs 4 vs. 23

"A Major Light In My Life"

My Dearest  Son,

I will always think of you with so much love and pride, for the boy you once were and the man you have become.  When God blessed your Dad and I with you, He blessed us REAL good.  I cannot think of a time since your birth that you have not been a joy to our hearts and a blessing to our lives.

You are the finest young man it has ever been my pleasure to know, and in all aspects of  your life, I hope you will think of yourself with as much high regard as your Dad and I think of you, remembering always, that when you think of yourself with high regard it is also easier to think of others in that same way.  In so doing, respect for yourself becomes respect for others.

You have always been a caring and loving Son, You are a loving Husband to our wonderful Daughter-In-Law and a loving Father to our two extraordinary Grandchildren.

I have always believed that the good in all humankind can't help but spill over on one another. Son, keep allowing your goodness to spill over!

Darlin' you have a beautiful, talented and wonderful family, and each one of you are bright shining stars, in Dad's and my eyes. No matter how hard I tried, I could never find the words to tell you how very much we love you and how thankful to God we are, for His having given you to us, to nurture for awhile...and to love for all eternity.

My Son,  there is nothing I can give you that you do not have,
but there is much that while I cannot give you, you can take: 

No heaven can come to us unless our hearts find rest in it today. 

Take Heaven.

No peace lies in the future which is not hidden in this present instant. 

Take Peace.

The gloom of the world is but a shadow; behind it, yet within 
reach, is joy. 

Take Joy.
