Happy belated.....

What a bad wife I am.


It took a good friend asking if I only did birthday posts for the kids to remind me that I had forgotten to post about a certain important someone's birthday.


Someone who has been going through such a hard time recently and yet been so cheerful and wonderful to everyone around him.


Someone who has always been there for me.


Someone who, poor thing, seems to have caught a cold on his birthday.


But who is still cheerful nevertheless.


Someone who shares my memories with me and marvels with me that our children are seniors and not tiny tots.


What can I say, father type?  I've been a forgetful wife.  But it doesn't mean you don't mean the world to me.


Happy belated birthday, my love.  You know I want to spend the rest of my life with you.

Margaret, this is so sweet! :D

I can't believe he can be cheerful when sick. I am such a big baby at that point; I usually use it as proof that I am actually a man (you know the whole men-are-bigger-babies-than-babies bit?), but your DH is disproving that one!

Isn't it wonderful how one can be "Just Right" for another without having to be perfect at all? Many happy returns for all of you.

I believe we're all allowed to forget one birthday without collecting penalty points. ;) Best wishes your wonderful husband and I do hope he recovers quickly from his cold!

What a lovely post. Although our loved ones know we love them it is so important to tell them how much we care.
