If Only We Could Clone Him

Yesterday was my husband's birthday.



And I didn't write about it yesterday because I didn't know what to say about him.


Other than Happy Birthday, which is sweet but doesn't really say it all.


What do you say about the man who gets better year after year? The man who becomes more generous, more selfless, more focused and devoted to his family? The man who bends over backwards to take care of those around him? The man who consistently comes up with ways to make my life easier? The man who shows his children every single day how much he loves them by investing all of his time and energies into them? The man who has spent the last week laying 400 square feet of concrete, preparing a talk for church this morning, dealing with a flooded basement at one of our rental houses, visiting the doctor for a certain "snip" procedure, and holding down the fort so I could Relay my buns off, all without one single complaint or whine?


I guess you say Happy Birthday my love. You are everything to this family. We would be lost without you and I thank my stars for you everyday. I hope your 36th year is the best one yet.

He's a keeper Karen. I really enjoyed his talk today and I can see how hard he works at being a great dad and husband. Have a great summer having him home!
