Happy Birthday!

Dear T,

Today is your birthday, and you are very, very pregnant. Any day now, you will give birth to our son, and it will be the best gift you could ever possibly give me, right up there with your love, which is the most amazing blessing of my life. So how can I possibly explain to you just how grateful I am to you–for you–and all you give and all you are? What possible combinatoin of verbs, nouns, adjectives, etc. can I string together that could do justice to the joy you bring to my life? Even when I’m at my lowest points, you still love me and take care of me. Eleven years ago, you chose me to make a life with, and you trusted me with your heart, your beautiful, generous heart. Now you are choosing me as your partner in the most amazing adventure of our lives, and all I can say is thank you. Thank You! I adore you.

Happy Birthday!

All my love. All my life.
