Today marks a very important day! …. Randy would tell you other wise because he’s never been one of those big “birthday people”. I happen to be a “birthday person”. I love my birthday and I expect everyone else to love it too! I mean, aren’t we all allowed to love one day out of the year and claim it as OURS?! Birthday’s are fun! And they don’t happen very often and so I believe that they should be celebrated!
But here we are, celebrating another birthday! It’s crazy how fast our years are flying by! It feels like only yesterday I was pulling into your driveway for the very first time to celebrate your 21st birthday – worried that the pie I brought wouldn’t taste good. But it was on that 21st birthday where everyone knew that we would be celebrating many more of your birthdays… together as a couple. Sometimes I can’t believe how blessed I am to have you in my life.
You’ve seen the good, the bad and the ugly… and yet you love me anyway. Thank you for always doing the dishes or taking over and cooking dinner when you know I’ve had a long day. Thank you for thinking of things before I do so that I don’t have to stress out when I remember later on. Thank you for supporting me when I go on crazy diets or workout plans. Thank you for having patience when I’m in a bad mood… This really could go on forever. There are so many reasons why I’m so blessed to have a husband like you. And while I can’t list them all, I can list out 25 reasons for your 25th Birthday! Here are 25 reasons why I’m thankful that you are my husband…
