Someone's Turning 50!

I've known you for thirty of your fifty years. And I've loved you for most of that time. I've watched you hold on to the best that each piece of your life has offered you and calmly let go of the rest. From your family and your roots in Oregon, you were given confidence, loyalty and an ease of being that is so admirable. You've always loved the out doors and music and you know how to relax and have a good time! You work at whatever you're choosing to do with a determination, steadfastness and diligence that amazes me. As a husband you have shown yourself to be faithful and forgiving. Full of laughter and eager to love. As a dad, well, you've had so much fun! You are adored. And respected. You have been someone for the kids to laugh with and someone for them to turn to. You're our rock.

There's not gonna be a lot of fanfare today, or any big surprises. But, at home {taking the night off from studying} and celebrating with the three of us who love you so much, I hope you know how deeply you are loved.

Happy 50th!
