Happy Birthday Boy!


Well today, May 13th, is boy's birthday. Happy Birthday boy! I'm sitting here at my desk at 1 am trying to come up with something witty and profound to tell you on your birthday. The words aren't really flowing as I had hoped. You are sound asleep and as I sit here with the timer going on the cinammon apple muffins in the oven for your birthday breakfast I can't help but think back over all the birthday's we've shared together. Remember 2003? It was our first birthday we shared as boyfriend/girlfriend. I tried to come up with something creative and fun to celebrate your big day. The night before I took a study break from a final I had bright and early the next morning on the New Testament and drove to Krispy Kreme to get you a box of donuts. I had planned on taking the final and then knocking on your door with donuts to surprise you. Well, as luck would have it, I woke up that next morning with the worst case of food poisoning ever. I had to make that final so I crawled to the building with bucket in tow. I was determined to take that final, then drove 50 feet to your apartment. I crawled up 3 flights of stairs to give you those dumb donuts thinking with ever blackout that this was going to be the day the Lord takes me home. I finally made it to your door, knocked and your sweet and excited face greeted me only to get a box of donuts chucked at your face and me going "Happy Birthday, I'm going to be sick"! I'm sure it was that moment you knew I was the one.

And last year, I thought it would be so fun for your to come home from work with all your present wrapped and waiting for your on the fireplace. How could I have forgotten that we are not the owners of an obedient dog? As you walked in the door all of your present were unwrapped for you.

Thank you boy for all these precious birthday memories we've shared. I can't wait to experience the rest with you. I love you more than you will ever know. I praise the Lord each and everday that I get to love you and be loved by you. Happy Birthday!
