Today is your birthday and I just wanted to tell you "Happy Birthday. I love you so much!" Actually there is more that I want to tell you, otherwise this would be quite a short blog post. I'll try to add some more substance to it. Now I know I'm not supposed to say how old you are (a gentleman never asks and a lady never tells) but I will say that you are not 20 and you are not 40 (I think your secret is safe, wink). Of all of your years, this one has been equal parts exciting and joyous and painful and a struggle (I'm talking about you know who). But, as weird as this may sound, I am so thankful that I experienced this out of control year with you and we went through it together. We always said we are a great team and this was proof positive of that. All of us have made it almost 5 months with you know who and you say that you couldn't have done it without me. Well, I couldn't have done it without you. There were times that is was harder on me than I let on, but I knew that WE would make it through those early months together so I had to be there to make sure the WE survived. I love you!
Watching you with Theron warms my heart more than I could ever explain. You have never had anything close to a maternal instinct and to see one makes me so happy! Soon you will be playing
I'm a weirdo. I'm strange. I'm not like normal people. Yet you love me! Anytime I talk to people about you I always say you are the nice one and a better person than I am. I mean that. It sounds selfish to say I love you because you put up with me, but I love that you put up with me. You have known me for as long as your Seniors in class have been alive, which warrants a medal of some sort. Thank you for being there for me and loving me more as time has gone on and the better you have gotten to know me. I love you!
Your demeanor, outlook, attitude, character, soul, heart, morals, etc etc is second to none. You are the best person that I know! This paragraph will be short because the only way to know what I mean is to know you and anyone that knows will agree and anyone that doesn't know you will not understand. I love you!
We're not supposed to buy gifts (even though someone has a tough time remembering that) and you know that I don't think material items properly convey feelings. So I am giving you this poorly written post and this promise: I will love you on this birthday and every birthday you ever have with the days in between filled with an equal amount of love for good measure!
I end with a picture that truly represents us! You know what picture it is even before seeing it and that is truly why I love you!
