Happy 30th Birthday to My Husband!

HAPPY 30TH BIRTHDAY to my husband!!!

If you don't like mush, stand aside.  I'm going to let the world know what I think of my man!

I am so thankful for this man and the wonderful husband he is to me.  For someone who is quiet and sensitive, some people may be surprised to know just how strong he is.  And yet he knows he would be nothing without God, whom he relies on.  He has been through incredibly hard times, as he stood by me through antidepressant drug withdrawal, praying for me, helping me keep continuing through it, having to hear his wife say what I can't imagine anybody wants to hear their loved one saying "I don't want to be here anymore".  He has been by my side, sometimes literally catching me, through at least 5 seizures if not more, the first one within weeks of our wedding.  He has prayed for me millions of more times than I know of, and if he hadn't I'm sure I would've had more seizures.  He has given up his dream job of flying to support the two of us - his family.  He has sacrificed dear relationships to stand up for his faith.  I have watched Christ transform him when he became a Christian in his early-mid twenties and watched his faith grow in leaps and bounds.  I can't tell you everything he has sacrificed, but if there is one word I might sum him up with it would be that. 

He is the sweetest man to me.  Absolutely gentle, patient, calm, encouraging - in a word, sweet.  I cannot count the number of times a day I hear or read the words "I love you" from him.  He always asks how my day is going and gives me hugs.  He offers to do things for me to make my day easier such as pick up groceries after work, and doesn't complain.  He even mops the floor and does other things around the house and let me assure you that just makes him more of a man to me, not less.  I am so thankful for the hard worker he is and that he provides for us.  People, this man works 12 hours days, 5 days a week!!  There is no such thing as a lunch break or coffee break in his days; he eats as he drives.  And yet he still spends time with me, knowing it's important to me, at the end of his day.  Now that is what I call love!!  
He loves his three nieces almost as if they were his own daughters.  He loves to hug them, talk about them, show pictures of them, spend time with them, listen to them, etc.  

He is good-looking, faithful, forgiving, a pilot which of course only increases his good looks ;) and I could go on and on as I'm sure I'm forgetting some of what makes my man wonderful.

Happy Birthday, Babe - neither of our dreams for age 30 came true but that is okay because as badly as I want a child and as badly as you want to be flying, we've got what really matters - God's got us in His hands, and we have each other - I love you!
