Tre, My dear sweet Tre,
To say I am proud or honored to be your mom is selling my feelings short of what they really are.
I feel overwhelmed with pride in your choice to be baptized a member of the church. What an incredible journey you have now embarked upon. When you were blessed as an infant by Daddy you were dressed in a sweet little cotton one piece with a baby bonnet that Daddy detested.  You had little white socks that slid right off your skinny feet any time you moved. You were darling in the color white then. & Now once more I saw you dressed in white. Head to foot.  You were dry & glowing with excitement. Daddy was holding back the tears so much that his cheeks were rosy red & his neck was pink. Seeing you wet was when we lost it. I think Daddy & Mommy cried enough to fill that font all over again. Even Omah was teary eyed. While daddy prayed he could no longer restrain his feelings & his voice said it all. I hope you felt that your daddy was overjoyed.  As soon as your little self rose from the water you threw your arms tight around Daddy's waist. he hugged you back & kissed the top of your head.  Everyone in the room oohed & awed at that sweet moment put on display to be shared.  My  heart was skipping with excitement as you prepared to receive the greatest gift. That of the holy ghost.  I pray you use it & be in places, & surround yourself with people & experiences that will allow the spirit to be your constant companion. I pray you use it & seek to take heed to it. be still & listen! I love you Tre, & so do all who meet you! neighbors & friends came to support you on your special day! you are one very blessed little boy! i pray this day has left its mark on your heart! love, mommy
