I have posted many things I am thankful for this month,although not as many as I had planned to due to the fact that trying to survive what must have been the Spanish Flu strain of the Bubonic Plague tends to give one writer's block.
I have waited until today to write of he whom I am most especially thankful for, not because he wasn't the first one I thought of, but because today is his birthday, so it seemed appropriate!
Today my groom turns 52, and he has been my groom for over 20 years now.
We have been through so much together... from the highest highs and victorious victories to the lowest of lows facing unimaginable loss. He has been by my side through thick and thin, and I will stay by his side for whatever is coming next.
He is my very best friend.
He is an amazing father.
He is quite possibly the hardest worker I have ever known.
He refuses to ever do anything the easy way.
He thinks so far outside the box, I am not sure he is aware that the box exists.
He makes music. And he makes songs. And he makes the things that make music. And when he sings one of his songs to me, playing a guitar that he has built, I admit that I swoon a little.
And although I swoon when he sings to me, I get positively weepy when he sings to God. He has a heart for worship and there is nothing he wants to do more than praise God with every breathe of his day. And he has passed that on to our boys.
I can't imagine that God could ever have created a better man for me to spend the rest of my life with.
I am thankful that he was born 52 years ago today, and that he found his way to me. And I'm thankful that I get to spend the rest of my days looking into his blue eyes, hearing him sing,and laughing at his quirky sense of humor.
It may be his birthday, but I'm the one who got the gift!
I love you Sweetie! Happy Birthday! I love you! Always!
