Happy Birthday, Brad!

Posted by Picasa

Brad turns 30 today! He is now officially old. ( Whereas I remain a spring chicken at 29.)

We just celebrated our fourth anniversary a couple days ago and now we have crossed the milestone of being married longer than we courted. So, naturally, along with this season of our anniversary and Brad's birthday comes a time of reflection. The more I get to know Brad, the more I like him. Not just love him, but like him. I know everyone says that having children changes everything, and I'm sure that's true, and that our relationship will evolve and go through transitions ... it's inevitable- children or no children. But I know that the changes aren't ALL bad ( thankyou to those of you who have reminded me of this) ... and I am looking forward to getting to know Brad as the father of our children. He is one in a million - a man I respect and enjoy. He's a good listener, very patient, understanding, unselfish, funny, a hard worker, devoted to his family, and intelligent in a wide range of areas ... just to name a few good things about him. And he's my friend.

Happy Birthday, Brad!! Can't believe you're 30. Man, we were just little kids in elementary school messing around on your grandpa's property. You were the obnoxious pre-teen who loved to scare the wits out of your sister and cousins during hide-and-seek! Ha ha! But I'll stop there. I think you're an awesome guy and I'm so glad for you that you've got a wife like Claire and a little one on the way! :-)Hope this year is your best one yet!

Well, well, well. Look who is old. Don't worry Bradley, I'm sure that God still loves you anyway ;-)

So trust you had a wonderful Birthday!

Happy birthday!! :)

I'm not usually very outwardly sentimental, but for some reason that made me think very seriously about "awww" tears. I think you are both very lucky. :)
