Tomorrow is a very special day....it's T's birthday! His 29th birthday to be exact. Yes, he'll always be one year younger than me (a fact he reminds me of every now and then). Since I don't normally blog on Saturdays, I want to dedicate today's post to the man in my life, my best friend, my T.
Before I met you, I had no idea what it really meant to love another person unconditionally and with all of your heart. I didn't believe in the concept of soul mate, my other half, my partner for life.
You are the person who hugs me after a rough day, the person who can make me laugh with just one look, the person who gets my jokes, who knows what I truly mean when I say something but am holding back. You're the person who wipes away my tears, who shakes his head with disbelief every time I come up with another bruise from randomly walking into something. You are the only other person who really has heard my southern accent and thinks it's adorable. You're the person who gets excited to watch Hoarders with me on Sunday and Ghost Adventures with me on Friday. You always say you love my cooking even when I mess something up beyond repair. You are always there to help me fix even my messiest of problems.
You are the person who loves with his whole heart and does so without any reservation. You're also Roo's best friend, you know?
You're the person in my life who claims with pride that he's from "the D" and tries to act street tough even though you are so far from that. You're the person who chuckles when you hear the word "duty" or "balls" or "fart." You're the person who makes Beavis and Butthead impersonations when you think no one is listening. (I always am, you know...)
You're the person who shared one of the most amazing experiences of both of our lives in going to Ireland. You're as crazy as I am, wanting to camp out in a pub for five hours before the big Arthur's Day toast. And you're the person who had no problem with the fact that his 5'1" wife could keep up with him drink for drink through the day. (Admit it, most men would feel threatened by that, right?)
You are everything to me and more. I feel blessed with each day that I get to wake up next to you. And I thank God every day that He brought you into my life.
