Happy Birthday, Sam!
Sam is a great student (he can do no wrong in his teachers' eyes), he loves to read, he enjoys plants and botany in general (his favorite birthday gift was a collection of carnivorous plants from dad), he is a gifted musician (he plays the violin beautifully and has a great tenor voice), he is as silly as they come and he can be a great help. I say can be because he's a teenager and sometimes he'd rather not do anything, thank you very much, but you get him on a good day and there is no stopping him! I admire how conscientious he is. He tries his hardest to avoid things that are not "virtuous, lovely, or of good report, or praiseworthy", though just walking down the halls at his high school often makes his ears burn! I'm glad it bothers him. He's a good kid and a good friend!
Sam, I am impressed with the young man you are becoming and I look forward to watching you progress over the months and years ahead. Stick to your goals and don't compromise your standards for anyone. You've got a bright future. I wish for you every good thing. I'm glad you're mine.
