Brielle turned 17 earlier this May!! We celebrated her birthday while in Tennessee visiting the Bates family! We had such a fun-filled day going to a special restaurant at a resort called Mt. McCloud, which was absolutely amazing!!! Then Brielle got to ride go-karts as a first along with bumper boats! We all had a blast!!!! =)
Brielle has been such a blessing to our family and so many others! God has given her so many gifts and talents and it has been a great joy to watch her use her talents to bless others! From playing her violin, to singing, or just making people laugh, she has truly been an energy-giver to all that she meets!
As an older brother, I have watched each one of my siblings grow and mature over the years. It has been so amazing to see how that even though all my siblings have grown up together, each one is uniquely different, with different giftings and strong points and each one makes our family what it is today!!! I wouldn’t want to miss any of them! Brielle is truly a wonderful blessing and I am soooo grateful for all that she means to our family! Her diligence, her love for the Lord and others, her fun-loving nature…all these bless us and so much more!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Briellle!! We Love you!!!!!
