Today is my husband’s birthday. This morning on my way to drop Logan off at daycare while he played his “DDS” I prayed out loud. This is a common thing for me. I have all but mastered how to block out the sounds of Sonic and Ninja Turtles during my prayer time. You got kids, you improvise and make minor adjustments to your “quiet time.”
I was thanking God for my wonderful husband. Again, this is a daily and common thing for me. But specifically, I felt great appreciation for the Lord creating this man that I am so blessed to call mine.
We are newlyweds and surely naïve in some aspects. Although, we have both been married, divorced, single parents, and now re-married. Blending a family is about as easy sticking a wet noodle thru a key hole. So while we are newlyweds we are by no means newbie’s at this gig. Its work. Some days we work for free, some days we get a raise, some days we work overtime, some days we call in sick, some days it doesn’t feel like work at all.
But every day is better because of him. He adds so much to each one of us. He makes us better versions of ourselves. He brings out the best in me. Who he sees when he looks at me is a woman I strive to be every day.
He’s honorable, honest, trustworthy, reliable, dependable, accountable, considerate, patient and passionate. He has a servant’s heart. He’s simple, even when I complicate things. He’s fair, generous, brave, funny, drop dead handsome. He’s selfless and giving towards others. He shares everything. He has no secrets. He doesn’t have a passcode on his phone. (SCORE! Am I right ladies?) He brings me chocolate and wine just because. He hides love notes in random places for me to discover randomly. He is my hero. And it’s not every day that I recognize ALL of his amazing qualities. Sometimes I forget how blessed I am that God aligned things perfectly for he and I to create this beautiful union of marriage and step-kids.
So today I wanted to take a moment to jot down all of his wonderful qualities and say Happy Birthday Kurt. You are more than I ever prayed for. You are more than I could ever deserve. I love being your wife. I love you!
