Happy Birthday!!!!  I love that your birthday falls on Thanksgiving again this year and I get to tell you not only how much I love you but how thankful I am for you as well.  I hope today is a special day for you!!  This is the 14th birthday I’ve been able to celebrate with you and just thinking about that makes me smile.  I love that when I was 14 years old I met you and eventually 😉 fell in love with you.  I love that I’ve been able to experience life with you at different stages (from high school, college, till now our mid and now our late 20’s), I have loved watching you grow into the man you are today and I am so thankful for you, who you are, and what you stand for.  You are kind, generous, loving, helpful, funny, irritating 🙂 at times, you are slow at everything you do (but over the last 14 years I’ve realized that you just like for things to be done precise and correctly… but I think you should sometimes speed it up a tad 😉 ), you love with your whole heart, you are smart, a go getter, an amazing husband and dad… you are so many things and I am thankful for each and every one of them… but I think more than anything, I am thankful that you are a man of God.  Thank you for trusting Him and thank you for turning to Him in everything you do and for leading our family the way you do!!  I love you so much and on this day of Thanksgiving I can that I am very very thankful for you!!!
