Before I say anything else…
Before I post another, well, post…
Before I write about things that matter little to me in the big scheme of things…
Before another minute of this beautiful (and seriously rainy) day is wasted…let me say,
“Happy Birthday!” to my lovely wife, Valerie (named after Valentines Day).
She is the sugar that makes my life sweet.
She is my sunshine on a cloudy day.
She is my anchor when I start to drift.
She is the unflinching lover when I don’t even love myself.
She’s cement that holds this family together.
She’s the warrior that fights on her knees.
She’s the one who regularly reminds me that there is One who has everything in control, even when I want to throw in the towel.
She’s the one who never gives up, always tries one more time, and considers “it all joy.”
I’ve not given her the life she really deserves, but I know one day God will reward her for all she sacrificed for me.
Happy birthday, Valerie! I LOVE you!
Once again I’m gonna share this video with a song I wrote several years ago just for her. I hope you enjoy it.
But please! Somebody pass this song on to a country star so I can make enough money to buy her something nice for our 25th anniversary…
…seriously, I’m a starving song writer (BMI), so hook me up.
Happy Birthday, Valerie! I love you!
