Tonight we celebrated two of the most important and special men in my life…my dad and my husband. They say daughters select husbands like their fathers. I’d say that’s true for me too. My dad and husband are very similar in character. Both are laid back, both are hard workers, both are wonderful fathers, both are honest, both love the Lord, both hate mayonnaise, both love meat, both are simple, both know when to be silent, both know when to speak boldly…and their birthdays are only one day apart, so they share the same horoscope. And they both love me very much, and I love them very much. Sometimes I think about how blessed I am to have been born to my mom and dad, in a christian home that that led me to Christ. I think about children who are not so fortunate and are born into very different situations. And I’m thankful that God heard my prayers from the time I was a little girl and prayed for a husband. God knows us better than we know ourselves, because He gave me someone who makes me strive to be better. He knew what I would need, and gave me a man that could fulfill those needs. Happy Birthday guys!
