Happy Birthday Adam

Happy Birthday!

We hate that you are not here with us and we can't celebrate with you until you get home. We hope you are having a great birthday.

I love so many things about you.

You are the best dad in the world to our kids. Thanks for being such a great protector, provider, playmate, preacher, patriarch, papa, pal etc. All three kids adore you like crazy and think you are the best thing in the world... so do I.

I love how you make us pancakes every Saturday morning.

I love how you are the "dish" man. My poor hands wish you were home too. :)

I love how you know bringing a cold diet coke home with you is never a bad idea.

I love how I am the only one who can truly tell the fine line between your moods.

I love when you come home after being on a trip and staying up late talking and reconnecting.

I love that we have spent 13 of our birthdays as a married couple.

I love that you are my best friend.

I love your soothing words...most of the time.

I love to travel with you.

I love how Laura idolizes you and I am convinced she will never find anyone who measures up, it will be hard. Emma is onto you a little more, but I am sure she will look for a man very much like you one day. :)

I love your ears, I don't know why I just think they are cute.

I love how you have figured out you are not that handy and that it is better just to hire someone to fix most things, ah the wisdom of age.

I love how you never hold a grudge against anyone...especially me.

I love how you never complain about what I cook and you make me feel like the best cook in the world.

I love how even the dog misses you when you are out of town. He will sleep on your side of the bed for months if that's what it takes, but he is there waiting just for you.

I could go on and on.... I just love you and feel honored to be be your wife.

Have a wonderful birthday and hurry home, we miss you.

God is so good!

It's taken me a while, but I wanted to thank you for your comment on my post! I would love to hear/read your testimony when you get a chance to share it!

I pray things are going well with your pregnancy and that you learn your orders soon!

Grace and Peace,
