Happy Birthday Tom

Today is Tom’s Birthday.

Every year I post about his birthday and how much I love him. Every year on his birthday, I make a special meal (this year it’s eggplant parmesan) and bake his favorite cake (vanilla with pudding and vanilla icing).

Anyone who knows me, knows how I feel about Tom. I think it’s important to tell the people you love that you love them. I try to show or tell Tom how much I love him every day. On his birthday, I try to kick it up a notch.

Tom, I appreciate you. I appreciate the man of God that you are. I love the way that you love me. I love your smile – it lights up my world. Your arms can both comfort me and make me feel safe. I love how you know what I’m thinking without saying a word.

I’m grateful that our adult children still look to you for wisdom. You’ve been a wonderful dad.

I watched for the last 31 years your ability to be a good and faithful friend, not only to me but to so many others. I love your zeal for helping others reach their destines.

You’re a good man and I thank God for picking you for me. You are my better half. Just in case you have any doubt in your mind – I love you. Happy Birthday, babe.

Forever Yours,
Nadine

This peach one is a big hit too!

The beauty of these is you make them up the night before as they need to sit and soak up all night long before baking!
try them sometime and tell me what you think! The carmelized bottom ones are best;)

Happy Birthday to Tom. I am praying for healing for him.

I had to tell you I ordered your book today. I can't wait to get it. I know I said I was going to get it before, but I have this thing I do. It's kind of weird. I am a fast reader so whenever there is a book that I really want I will either hold off buying it or reading it right away because I know I will read it fast and it will end sooner than I like so this is my way of prolonging the excitement for a new book. I can't wait.
