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.
