Today is my husband’s birthday. It’s a date I look forward to all year so that I can thank him for the gift he is to me. I can’t imagine who I’d be if it weren’t for the influence, love and care that he has given me my entire adult life.
It’s good from time to time to imagine the hole there would be in my life if Tom were no longer here to share this adventure with me. It causes me to appreciate the little things in a more significant way.
Gifts and cards are good, but heart-felt gratitude is the best gift we can give to our spouse. Don’t let their birthday just be another day on the calendar. It’s special because it was the day God chose to breathe life into their soul, and He declared that it was good, very good!
Happy birthday, Tom Walter! I’m grateful for the past, enjoying the present and can’t wait to unwrap the future with you!
