because of you...

Tuesday, October 21, 2008

because of you, my world is safer. more secure. more fun.

because of you, our girls are happier. secure. ecstatic to see you when you walk in the door.

because of you, getting lost is an adventure. reading books is hilarious. sitting down with a cup of coffee, and you, is addicting.

because of you, my arms have a purpose. to not only hold the babies you've given me, but to hold you as well.

because of you, i'm loving who i'm becoming.

because of you, i'm loving who you are becoming.

each year that you turn older, i'm reminded of how blessed i am. of what an incredible man you are; and i can't wait to see how this next year will deepen your character.

you are a man of strength and integrity: a fierce protector and gentle father, and i love you with everything in me.

because of you, the men our daughters marry someday will have some pretty big shoes to fill.

but i wouldn't have it any other way...because of you.

happy birthday, sweetheart.
