Happy Birthday to David



It's David's birthday, so today's post is All About Him...

This birthday is the 20th year I've sung "Happy Birthday" to him. WHAT? That's just plain crazy.

He is an amazing skier. A.Ma.Zing.

He adores children and they respond so quickly to him.

He loves gadgets of all sizes. I do not understand this fascination, but it makes him happy, so whatever.

He's so great at helping out wherever we are. He looks for what needs to be done and does it. Yesterday he vacuumed most of my parents' house before we left.

He makes up funny songs that make all of us laugh.

He is a devoted son.

He understands people and loves them. He reads situations well, and is able to sift through a lot of garbage to figure out how to make things better.

He is wise.

He is funny. Except when his jokes are of the 13-year-old variety. And even then, he thinks he's very funny. And so does Josh.

He loves cars.

He has a cool job.

He loves me fully and completely. Our marriage has gotten stronger and stronger over the years, through both difficult and beautiful times.

I love you, David. Happy Birthday.

20 years is IMPRESSIVE! What a wonderful tribute. Mark tells 13-year-old jokes too. I'm glad I'm not alone.

Happy Birthday David!!! Keith makes up nonsensical songs, the kids laugh, me...not sooo much! I should, but they drive me crazy for some unknown reason.
