It’s your birthday, did you know? 167 years ago, several men chartered you with big dreams and hopes for a place called the Republic of Texas. They didn’t know about me or family and the role we’d all play together, but I bet they felt in their hearts that the decision they were making was important, a worthy investment.
Happy Birthday, my dear Baylor! I don’t know what I would have done without you. No, really. I literally wouldn’t exist without you. Parents meeting in Moody Library and my brother leading the way after that ensured both my existence but also factitudethat I would spend four years of my own with you. And truly, I can’t imagine life without you and your effect. My favorite people, my family, sweet times of growth and growing pains, full hearts and heart ache. I love you so. Thanks for everything.
