Tears for His Birthday
I have the most amazing husband. He is beyond better than I deserve or could have ever hoped for. Being married to him has brought me a "whole new world" of possibilities and growth. I have learned more about myself, more about life, and more than I thought was possible to know about love in the past 13 years of being married to him.
Today is his birthday and he blogged about that, bringing tears to my eyes.
If you have the privilege of knowing him in person, you know I am not exaggerating. He is nothing but goodness. He is warm and gentle and kind. He is articulate and intelligent and witty. He does more than his share of cleaning and laundry and he cooks and bakes all of our food. He does the grocery shopping. He provides for us, inspires his congregation, encourages parents of kids with special needs, and is an example of integrity.
And above all this he can make me laugh even in the midst of the worst of days. He frees me to be me and celebrates, in his own way, who I am, which, if you know me, is amazing.
Happy Birthday, Bart. I'm the luckiest woman on earth.
