Always a Happy Birthday Song

Four years ago today my parents called to sing Happy Birthday to Luke. Praise the Lord we were not home and they sang to him on our answering machine.

Several months later, I realized the message was still on our machine. I thanked God immediately for this little gift and will forever be grateful.

Ever since, on his birthday, Luke has been able to hear his Grandma Petty sing Happy Birthday to him, with Grandpa as the backup. I can think of no better present than the sound of Mother’s voice singing to her youngest Grandson.

Sometimes I cry when I listen, and sometimes I smile so big it hurts.
Luke, please know your Grandma Petty thought the world of you….in fact, I know she still does.


Mommy and Daddy love you so, so much and are so very proud of you and all you have done in your six years!

  1. Oh Amanda! That is so sad but yet so sweet!!! That is awesome that you still have that recording of your Mom. She was such a great person,and she was always so nice to my sister even after the divorce. I know Max really misses her alot and thinks of her every single day.
