• Happy Birthday

    Date: 2010.05.16 | Category: marriage | Tags:

    Today is my husband’s 36th birthday.  It’s the 7th  birthday we’ve celebrated together.  I find that to be astonishing.  How can I have known him that long?  I thought that today would be the perfect day to tell you about the wonderful man I married.

    • Chris is exactly the same with everyone- he never pretends or puts on a front.  He acts the same around his mother, his boss, his friends, and the person he’s just met.  He is so genuine and I wish that it would rub off on me!
    • Chris will give you the shirt off his back.  Or his car.  Or a place to sleep.  No hesitation, no regrets.
    • Chris loves his family.
    • Chris has an amazing ability to combine technology and people skills.  He’s the guy who can get the engineers and the technophobes to understand each other.
    • Chris is slow to anger and quick to forgive.
    • Chris loves the classics- black and white movies, musicals, broadway theatre, the Beatles and Billy Joel.
    • Chris is content to live with very little.  (Ok- he does lust after every new gadget on the market, but he’s a techie- who can blame him?)
    • Chris loves to play- board games, poker, cards, whatever.
    • Chris is such a hypochondriac.  Even he will admit that he’s a little obsessive.
    • Chris is a packrat and a collector.
    • Chris loves to sleep- almost as much as I do!
    • Chris has just the right combination of humility and self confidence.
    • Chris is a wonderful provider for our family- he considers it his duty to pick up extra work so that I can be home with the kids.
    • Chris loves Jesus and desires to live for Him.

    I am so thankful that God brought us together.  I pray we have many many more birthdays to celebrate together.

    Happy birthday dear husband!
