My one, my truth, my reason for idiotic bliss. I cherish this, your birthday as I have the others who have come before with as much awe and honor as I ever have.
You never cease to amaze me as we grow older, year by year and side by side.
The first birthday we shared I brought you the wrong gift but with all the right intention. You were so sweet about it all, I was embarrassed but glad to be with you.
My crush weighed so heavily on my brain I could barely remember to wrap your gifts.
Since your last birthday we never spent a night alone. You were next to me for cake and ice cream, for laughing until we cried and for beer on beaches. For every sweet moment in between.
My crush still weighs heavily and at times I can barely speak.
Sometimes it is all I can do, I stare in wonder and amazement that you are here with me. No miles to distance us. No goodbye need ever be long.
I am honored to spend this day, the birthdays previous and the days to come celebrating you. Your laugh and your smile. Your kindness and your generosity. Your strength and your courage. I admire you.
I am in awe of your ability to tackle anything that comes our way with strength and wisdom. You surprise me each passing year with your passion and commitment to our little family. I am moved by your beautiful gaze and am transported by your touch.
My pride, my lover, my best friend and my destiny. I have never been more grateful to be in your company.
Happy 41st my love, my gorgeous. My darling wife.
I adore you more than words will ever say.
