My Sweet Husband,
Today you enter your 35th year of life! We get to celebrate YOU and that makes me so happy. You never like to be in the spotlight nor do you love attention, so that's what makes today especially fun ;) Since we aren't a couple that is big on PDA (translation: you aren't - I TOTALLY am ;) ...I thought I would openly 'gush' over you because that's what birthdays are for!
First off, I'll just start by saying that you are the absolute best person I know. You are caring and welcoming ... non judgmental and forgiving ... steady and strong. I have had the privilege of being around you for awhile now, and you are the same today as you were 10 years ago when our friendship first began; the same sweet man with a quiet yet strong presence and a warm heart.
You have the innate ability to get along with literally ANYONE, which is such an admirable trait (and one that I certainly am still trying to acquire ;)
You are an encourager by nature. You believe in people and support them, regardless of circumstance. This has always been true in our relationship. There have been many dreams and ideas that I have chased over the past 10 years and you ALWAYS supported them. Not only did you support me, but you listened, gave your input, and encouraged me every step of the way. Thank you ... I love you for that.
Your positivity is infectious! You see the glass 'half full' and always choose to see the good in every situation. It's hard to find someone that's always in a good mood (even in the wee hours of the morning!) ... but I appreciate it so much!
You are the most humble human I know. You have every reason not to be (don't make me list them all ;), yet you display humility and kindness in every situation. I am witness to it daily and it's one of the MOST attractive qualities about you.
You are such an incredible father to London and it's an absolute DREAM to watch you with her. I knew early on in our relationship that you would be an amazing dad, but you're even BETTER than I could have ever imagined. She looks at you with stars in her eyes and nothing makes me happier than to know she can always feel secure in you and your love.
The world needs more men like you in it, Babe. You are such a blessing in our lives and the lives of so many. I thank Jesus every day for you, our marriage, our friendship, and the little family we are creating. So today, on your special day, I hope you know you are loved BEYOND measure...deeply, and forever!
Happiest of birthdays, my love & cheers to many more...
