happy birthday, babe!
you are a wonderful husband and father, and we are blessed beyond measure to have you as ours. i am blessed to call you my own. thank you for being the man that you are: the provider, supporter, snuggler, bedtime book reader, laugh-inducer, smile-maker, room brightener, encourager. thank you for loving us the way God designed for you to.
and thank you:
thank you to my in-laws, art and lynda.
thank you for making sean the man that he is today. thank you for the home environment that you raised him in. thank you for the church you raised him in, for the biblical teaching you gave him and the foundations you set. thank you for teaching him a good work ethic by not giving him all he wanted, but making him work for it. thank you for encouraging him in sports and the confidence you gave him in them. thank you for praying for him. thank you for praying for me. thank you for teaching him what it means to be a man, and how to treat a woman. thank you for instilling a very good sense of humor in him, that laughter is a part of life. thank you for teaching him life-skills, for teaching him how to use a hammer and how to make a meal. thank you for valuing family time and making that a priority. thank you for valuing your friendships and teaching him to do the same. thank you for making him so darn like-able (and all your kids, actually)! thank you for your marriage and the example you set for him while he was young. thank you for loving him the way that God designed for you to, so that he in turn is able to love us the way that God designed.
thank you. thank you. thank you.
