Isn’t this how life goes? You wake up with a plan and life laughs in your face? Well that’s how my life goes, I don’t know about yours. It’s my wonderful husband’s birthday today. He’s the BIG 36, I say BIG because if you are rounding technically he’s close to 40!
I had this wonderful day planned. I was going to wake up and usher the kids off to school, get the last of my editing done, bake a cake, tidy up the house, and have his favorite dinner on the table. Instead, I woke up late in a sweat, looked at my alarm, and jumped out of bed only to land on the end of a cord. (If you’ve ever stepped on the end of a cord, you know they are almost as deadly as legos!) I rushed into the kid’s room to wake them when I find my daughter hunched over sick! She immediately runs passed me, and needless to say, what happened next was not pretty. So, now I am nurse for a day, on my sweet husbands birthday. (Did that just rhyme?)
Thankfully, he won’t mind if things don’t go as planned and I’m sure he rather I not make a spectacle of his BIG day. That’s how he is, understanding. Understanding of the fact, the house WILL be a mess when he gets home. Understanding that dinner might be late, again! Understanding that even if I did bake a cake, it would probably be thee sorriest cake ever, because I in fact, cannot bake for the life of me! He’s the most understanding man I’ve ever met. Not to mention the funniest.
I know how undeserving I am to have such an understanding, loving, and God fearing husband to love me. He loves me unconditionally. I am so thankful to have this man, as my husband, and to be able to celebrate another birthday with him. I love you babe, with all my heart, happy birthday!
