He dives headfirst into everything. So brave it scares me. Fearless and fast…that’s my boy. I watch him in wonder, as if he were a new and undiscovered species of person, and I am amazed at the energy and courage that God created in him.

How can so much sweetness be tangled up in so much toughness? How can love be so adequately communicated with clenched fists?
Because whatever he does, he does fiercely.
