Happy Birthday to My Husband!!

Even though you are Twenty-Eight years young today, you are still this sweet little boy at heart, and that is just one of the many things I love about you. This man is my everything. He has been everything I could have ever asked for in a husband and more. He has shown me that men really are capable of loving me unconditionally. I spent years searching for the love of my own father and I never fully received it. But friends, God is so very good. He knows our innermost desires and needs. And best of all, He meets them. I truly believe that the reason I met "my person" so early in life is because I had gone most of my life not knowing, understanding or trusting the love of a man, and I had resigned myself to the idea that all men would leave me, just like my own father. After all, if he didn't want me, why would anyone else. He helped make me for Heaven's sake. If somehow my dad is reading this I want him to know that I have forgiven him for everything that has been, and more importantly for everything that will be. I love him and I will always long for a relationship with him that no one in this world can replace. But, if it weren't for the love that both my husband and my Heavenly Father have shown me, I would not feel that way. My husband has been so patient in loving me and I know that I have been so very unlovable at times because of my hurt and anger. But, he is gentle and he is stable and he loves me. To really know that there is a man who loves me wholeheartedly and unconditionally, despite all the baggage I come with-and no instruction manual, is truly amazing to me. Some days I am in disbelief that God has given me such a blessing. I used to feel unworthy and undeserving of such a love, which is sad. Because of the love of my Savior and my husband, I now know that I am worthy. And so are each of you, sweet friends. No matter what you've been through or what you've done, we serve a loving and forgiving God, and He will give you a mate that will love you and forgive you just the same. He will give us the desires of our hearts. Each of you are worthy. So very worthy. What I love most about my husband is that he truly loves the Lord with all of his heart. His love for the Lord shows in the way he loves me, as Christ loves the church. I am so thankful to have such an incredible spiritual leader as a husband. There are so many qualities I admire about my husband. He is a true Southern gentleman-the kind that says ma'am and sir, opens doors, and knows that boys always call girls first and that said boy always pays for the date. He loves his family with everything in him and is completely loyal to them and mine, too. He is generous, loyal, trustworthy, funny, a good/true friend,compassionate, hardworking, he can drive any kind of truck, tractor, and boat and can pull any kind of trailer,adventurous, intelligent, motivated, athletic, talented, and the list goes on. Everything he does he is good at. He plays football, basketball, was a baseball pitcher in school, plays golf, the guitar and banjo. He water and snow skis, he snowboards, he hunts, fishes, hikes, camps, and he does underwater basket weaving. Just seeing if you're still paying attention. Seriously, though, he is wonderful. He loves country, Southern classic rock, and bluegrass music. He is one of the most passionate people I have ever known and makes the best out of every situation. He doesn't have a negative bone in his body and that is the truth. He is happy no matter where he is or what he is doing because he chooses to be. He has the cutest dimples when he smiles, which he is almost always doing. And he surprised me with a Pug, my dream dog 2 1/2 years ago.He doesn't have to be asked to fix things when they're broken. He loves to help me cook and clean without complaining. Ever. He always takes out the garbage because he knows that's not a lady's job. He is happy to do yard work and landscaping and knows the Latin names of most plants and trees. He loves to travel. He enjoys shopping with me and never complains about it when we do get to go. He takes care of me, the way a husband should. Yet, he really is a simple man. And, of course, he is easy on the eyes. Real easy, in fact. I just can't get enough of him. I know I'm bragging, but today is his day and he deserves it! Brandon is my Prince, my hero and my best friend. Happy 28th Birthday, love!!! xoxoxoxoxoxoxo P.S. If I could I would get you that new F-250 diesel truck you want so badly. Someday, I hope! I love you to pieces, Squeeze :)
