My husband celebrated a milestone birthday last week. I threw a birthday party for him that happened to coincide with our wedding anniversary, which of course is a big deal to us but I really wanted the celebration to be about him and only him. My husband generally prefers to deflect any attention from himself. His work provides him with more attention than he knows how to deal with. But this time it wasn’t about anything else other than wanting to show my love and appreciation for him. Not to mention the same sentiments of all his friends and family who attended his 60th birthday party.
He deserves to be celebrated. Not only did I get a wonderful husband but a terrific father to our girls. There were many reasons why I fell in love with him. But one in particular was seeing what a fantastic father he is to his three older girls. As his daughter Tallulah would call it, “The first batch.” I now get to experience the magnitude of it day in and day out with Mabel and Evelyn. The value of his presence in our children’s life is such a joy for me to witness.
Not only did I get a wonderful husband but a terrific father to our girls...
Because I come from divorced parents I have seen the other side of what single parenting is about. It is not easy and I have so much respect for single parents out there. Which makes me so grateful to have my husbands love and support not only for me but with our children. I couldn’t do this with out him.
From my home to yours,
