My niece Amber turned 18 years old this week. It seems like just yesterday she was celebrating her first birthday, eating birthday cake for the first time with her big eyes and wondering who this goof was sticking a camera in her face. Time has flown by so quickly and it is amazing to see how much she has grown into a beautiful young woman.
As her uncle, I have had the privilege of watching her grow and mature into the person she is today. Amber has always been full of life, joy, and kindness, and although I haven’t been around as much as I would have liked, I am proud of the adult she has now become. Amber has a heart of gold and a bright future ahead of her. I am beyond blessed to have her in my life. Happy 18th birthday, Amber. Here’s to many more years of love, laughter, and memories.
