Yes it’s Official. This Man of mine turns 50 tomorrow. The nerve. Not only has he passed right “over the hill” – but he had the audacity and unmitigated gall to be born right BEFORE CHRISTMAS!!! What WAS he thinking??? Okay – maybe it wasn’t his fault – but his irresponsible parents – how unthoughtful of them! Someone must be to blame for this unfortunate occurrence.
Every year it’s the same thing – We put up the lights and tree – all the decorations and we’re in CHRISTMAS mode – and then – WHAMMO – we’re hit with a Birthday – 5 days before Christmas!! Unthinkable.
Well – tomorrow we will fuss over him and make him feel really great to try to sooth his masculinity – after all – he IS pretty old. He can’t help it – it happens to us all – I myself am never turning 50 – I have decided it’s not for me. Even though 50 is the new 30 – or something like that – and I’ve never looked or felt better – Nope – it’s not for me ☺
I feel as though I must say some things about this wonderful man I’m married to. He’s one of a kind – and I know I could never replace him. No one could put up with me as he has – shown love and graciousness as he has done and been the example to me and our children of God’s patience, humor and consistency through the good and bad times. I’m in awe of him. He’s one of the most “perfect” human beings I’ve ever met – never a cross word in 28 years of marriage – hardly ever loses his temper – I’ve only seen it happen a couple of times and is always positive and loving – and it’s been a good thing too – because I am so flawed and make so many mistakes. But he is steadfast and dependable – always seeking – always doing the right things – always believing the best and wanting me to be better – his encouragement and strength have been a “god-send” and daily I’m reminded how lucky I am. He is truly the best man I’ve ever had the privilege to know. All his friends would say the same thing about him – they feel lucky to know him. His parents and brothers can’t say enough good things about him either. He is blessed ♥
Tomorrow we celebrate with Eddie Duarte cooking Mexican for us and having all the family and friends come through our home for a Birthday Open House. We are getting the house ready for everyone today – and excited to see everyone – old friends – some we haven’t seen in a long time – some we see all the time. We are thinking today of our out of town friends that we wish could be here too – our thoughts are with you today ♥
Below is a baby picture of my dear husband and a picture of what he looks like today – He’s a handsome, sexy 50 year old!! Much love to you, Greg ♥♥♥
