If it weren't for him...

...I wouldn't have 3 beautiful children
...there would be a lot less laughter in our home
...I wouldn't know it is possible to "smell my brain"
...I wouldn't be the woman I am
...who would be the captain of my fan club?
...I wouldn't know a thing about technological stuff
...I wouldn't have amazing in-laws
...the projects I dream about might never happen
...nights would be lonely
...I would have no one to walk with through eternity
...who would understand me so completely?
...I would have bunches more room in my bed one would have as much patience with me
...many of my doctrinal and church history questions would go unanswered (or at least take a lot longer to study out)
...anniversaries would be less meaningful
...I wouldn't feel supported in my love affair with The Olympics
...I couldn't have the amazing life I have now.

I love you, Happy Birthday!!!
