This post is dedicated to my little missionary brother. Happy birthday to the hardest working missionary I know! Elder Matthew Austin Gallego!
Tomorrow you will be turning 20 and I am so sad that I can't be there to share it with you. I cannot even believe that you are going to be 20 years old. It seems like just yesterday that you were stealing my princess purses and playing dress up with me. I miss your smile and your funny little jokes. I miss hearing you quote Hot Rod and The Ringer in every sentence that came out of your mouth. As much as I found it annoying most of the time, I hate to admit, I miss it so much... I miss our long talks about life and the times when you held me in your arms, as I cried over silly things or stupid boys. I just miss YOU. I know that what you are doing is so great and you are blessing so many lives out there is Pennsylvania. They are so lucky to have you. You are changing into such a great young man and I am so proud of the person you are becoming. Know that I will be thinking of you on your special day and that I am giving you hugs and kisses from far away. I can't wait until we are reunited again so that we can create more memories together. I love you and I hope that you have the best birthday ever.
