He is a loving husband and takes care of me. He embraces me just as I am.

(and as Jodee reminded me, he arranges spa weekends for me with my friends!)

He teaches our children by example.

He is selfless and giving and strong and funny.

  45. Happy Belated Birthday Dave!

    Sorry for a late birthday wish. I am so for behind on reading my blogs.

    It looks like from the above post that you all had a great time celebrating Dave's birthday...minus Kate choking....bless her heart...bless YOUR heart, I know that was so scary!

    I love your tribute to you precious hubby...I have one just like him. While I was reading your post, I wondered if they may have been seperated at birth :-). We are just so blessed.

    Next time I go to Houston to visit my sister-in-law we will have to meet somewhere and enjoy a nice little visit.
