The lucky ones among us get to meet people on this journey through life that leaves a lasting impression. Like a great tattoo. They inspire and change you. People who walk in and accepts you for who you are, with all your flaws, warts, shenanigans, bad habits and everything else that makes you human. The kind of person who makes you want to be better at being you.
And if you’re really, really, really fortunate, you get to marry that person.
My love, it’s been 23 years since we’ve met and look how far we’ve come on this journey of forever together. Your birthday is just another simple reminder of how blessed we are for having you in our lives.
You guide us with your iron fist and gentle touch. You comfort us with your sincerity and hilarious puns. You give us confidence with consideration and drive. You make us choose the high road, every frigging time. You inspire. You love. You create a safe haven. You keep us all together. For you are the greatest soulmate, friend, mother, partner, Wife, guidance counselor, taxi driver, secretary, judge, chef, organizer and home maker on this planet.
And we’re very privileged and happy to be able to call you ours. Here’s wishing you a wonderful birthday and the most blessed year ahead.
We love you. Like no other human has ever been loved in the history of mankind.
