happy birthday to my rockstar!

If we didn't have birthdays, you wouldn't be you!
If you'd never been born, than what would you do?
If you'd never been born, than what would you be?

You might be a fish! or a toad in a tree!

You might be a doorknob! Or three baked potatoes!

You might be a bag full of hard green tomatoes!

Or worse than all that... Why, you might be a WASN'T!!!

A Wasn't has no fun at all. No, he doesn't.
A Wasn't just isn't. He's just not present.
But you. You... ARE YOU! And now, isn't that pleasant!

"Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You."
- Dr. Seuss.

i wouldn't trade the you that you are for any other you!
You have blessed my life more in the last 4 months since we met than you could know.
Today the only part of me that is sad is the part that wishes i could be with you on your birthday. I hope your day is full of all the things you love. I hope your sisters & mama spoil you for me. I hope you stand taller knowing i am cheering for you, even from far away. I can't wait to come see you. I can't wait to hike another mountain(or 3) with you! I am blown away by your heart and your kindness. I am blessed by your wisdom and captivated by your heart. Thanks for thinking i look good in sweats and a pony-tail. Thanks for believing in my dream for Africa. Thanks for thinking i have a good voice. You can't even begin to understand how proud i am to call you mine! Wow! I can't even believe that the last few months have un-folded as they have! I am thrilled to have laughed late into the night with you. I am blessed to have had you to hear my tears and calmly tell me everything would be ok! We have jumped some hurdles and won a few races. We have tred some deep water together! My heart dances when i think that i have YOU! to do all these things with... even the hard things.... i am so blessed.


My hope today is that, even though all i have is words from far away, you can hear my heart singing HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Because i only have words, i want you to hear me loud and clear: March 24th will never be just another day on my calendar, i plan on always circling it on the calendar with a heart <3. I plan on always smiling on your birthday. I plan on always writing you a special blog post. Because words are all i have today, hear me when i say;
i love you. happy birthday!
