It’s a Boy and Number Eight – Daniel Wesley Carlson
What another great and beautiful day for our family! Jill and I are so pleased with the birth of a new grandson. We welcome Daniel Wesley Carlson, our number eight grandchild, into our family. In addition, we wish him health, happiness, and good fortune throughout his life. He is a perfect and beautiful baby boy weighing in at 8 pounds 5 ounces and measuring 19.5 inches in length.
He was born on Tuesday, October 21, 2014, at 5:13 p.m. at Timpanogos Regional Hospital located in Orem, Utah. Daniel is the first child of my third son James and his wife, Alyse. Baby and mother are doing very well.
Hopes and Prayers
I hope and pray, Daniel, that you will always make God your number one priority. Whether rich or poor, strong or weak, young or old, those who are jubilant have a strong faith in God and in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Pray often and share your day to day joys and sorrows with Him. Don’t expect God to give you things, and don’t expect Him to bail you out of problems you may find yourself. Know that He loves you and wants you to live a full and happy life!
Listen to and follow the guidelines, direction, and counsel of your parents. They love you and only have your best interests in their hearts. You will be a great influence on your other siblings and they will look up to you as an example. Always take the high road and remember that the right choice is usually the hardest choice. Good luck Daniel!
Daniel is our eighth grandchild and fifth grandson.
