Happy Birthday, Hubs
My Dearest C,
To say that I am grateful for the fact that the Lord gave you life on this day, 37 years ago, is a bit of an understatement. You are my best friend, the father of our beautiful children, and the one person who I want to be with me when I'm old and cranky. (I hear you...how is that different from now?? hehe.) The gray hairs adorning the face I love are only signs that we have made it through some tough times. Marriage, jobs, children, money and the woes of the daily routine are the things that can wear us down. But you. You find the joy in dreams of vacations, future plans, or even just a night out without the kiddos. You encourage me to be a better person, better mother and to just plain have fun with life everyday. I wish I could give you more opportunities to get out in the world and explore like your heart wishes...and for your patience, I am even more grateful. I love to be your cheerleader when you do get down and can picture so many times when you were the one holding me up when things were tough. It's amazing, but I still feel this way about you! There are so many reasons that I could list about how wonderful it is to have you in my life, but I think I'll save those for just our time today. (You know, that two minutes between kids' bedtime and the time we pass out from our crazy day?)
I love you dear Hubs, and I hope you have a great birthday where you hear and see from all of us how much we appreciate you and how special you are!
Ps. It seems so funny to be writing a letter to you now. Remember those days of living apart in college? We wrote letters all the time!
