today is my husband’s birthday. i’m not sure how to write anything to him right here in this space without it coming off as a big cheese fest, but it is his birthday after all, and a kinda sorta cheesy blog (what?! no it’s not!) so you’re gonna have to just let me do it, yeah? ;)
this man of mine is wonderful to the core. i am so grateful to have him. i have been such a big boob this past month. mean, cranky, not a very kind wife. i keep blaming this on january, but it’s really not january at all. at least not all of it. it’s more me working through a more difficult spot of my life as i try to figure out some personal things (experiences that i don’t feel quite up to sharing in this space right now.) bottom line, i just haven’t been very fun to be around. i’m frankly pretty embarrassed with myself but this is turning into a downer and that wasn’t what i was wanting. what i’m trying to say is, thank you josh, for still being really kind, and gentle, and loving to your wife this month (and always.) i know it is hard sometimes. i know i make it hard. i feel like it says volumes about who you are, and i want to appreciate and love you better. thank you for working so hard for our family. thank you for being such a good papa to eleanor and samson. thank you for being a better listener than most of my girlfriends and for supporting me always. thank you for being so dedicated to your father in heaven and for having such unwavering faith, because i know it makes you who you are and the way you lead our family. thanks for keeping me so centered, and for being my best friend.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, my love. i love you.
(and, i cannot wait to eat ice cream with you today. let’s have it for every meal. :o )
