When we met many years ago, her smile and her laughter could brighten the darkest day and I could get lost in the wonder of her eyes. She was as beautiful on the inside as she was on the outside. I've always wondered why she would settle for a clunk like me but I'm smart enough not to challenge her on it. With the passage of time little has changed, except we move a little slower and our joints ache just a little bit more. She still takes my breath away.
I still love her as much now as I did then That's a lie. I love her even more. As we grew together, she has been my source of happiness and joy. She has helped me grow to be a better person. She has given the world two amazing daughters, who, in turn, have given the world amazing grandchildren. I am the luckiest man on earth.
Happy birthday, my love.
