To my Wife on Her Birthday

We’ve been married for almost 11 years (thank goodness it was 2000 – I’ll always know what year we’re on).
We’ve been a couple for almost 16 years (I think I did the math right).
We’ve got three beautiful, amazing, healthy children (even when they’re fighting, crying, whining, and not sleeping).
We’ve had some of the most exciting, rewarding, fulfilling experiences this life has to offer.
We’ve also been at crossroads, not knowing what to do or where to go.
And yet, here we are…
Somehow God’s plan was for us to be right here.
Somehow God planned for you to be born in the same time and space as me (yeah that sounds all matrix…)
Somehow He brought our lives together.
And somehow He sustains us, gives us day after day after day to spend with one another. To help each other. To struggle. To love.
Today I thank God for you.
I love you so much.
Happy Birthday.
Now let’s PARTY!
