Today, the love of my life turned 38! I just wanted to dedicate my blog to him today. So, if you can't stand mushy stuff please do not read any further.
I know it sounds trite, but my husband really was made just for me. We are very similar (that seems to work for us) and we had similar childhoods. We talk about experiences that we had as kids and what we thought about them or how we reacted to them and it seems we were separated at birth. I love his eyes, his twisted sense of humor that no one sees but me, his tender heart toward the underdog, his dedication to his work, his love for God and his family, his sense of adventure, and his love of all things old. That, of course, only scratches the surface. I want to let him know today that I am proud of the man that God has made him to be. I'm sure he feels inadequate at times, but he is a very different man than the one I married 11 years ago. He has blossomed (can I say that about a man?) into a confident man who stands up for what he believes in even when that means stepping way out there into uncharted territory. I am so proud of him for using the gifts God has given him to further His kingdom. I can't wait to see what else God has in store for our family. Most of all, I want him to know that I feel like the most blessed woman on earth to call myself his wife. Elliott, I love you.
