Another birthday for my love!

28 years ago
my mother-in-law and father-in-law
were blessed.
Another blonde-haired, blue-eyed boy.

Little did they know the accident prone child
they welcomed.

12 sets of stitches later
we met.
Apparently, God blessed this meeting
with no more emergency room visits
(at least not for him).

Big A, I love you so much
not for the things you do for me
(although clean dishes and fresh linens are always welcome)
but for who you are:
a man who loves God
a husband who cherishes his wife
a daddy who balances discipline and fun
a friend who is generous

You are my much better half.
Anyone who meets us probably realizes that.
You make me a better me.

Here's to another year without the ER.
Another year of laughter.
Another year of love.
Another year where we
(your beautiful clone-sons and myself)
are truly blessed
with your presence.

Happy birthday, honey!
