The Birthday Girl
Happy birthday to my sweet, beautiful wife! Yes, Laura has a birthday once again. So if you see her or have her phone number, be sure to wish her a happy birthday! I won’t tell you her age, but she is not quite as old as I am.
Unfortunately, we are not out exploring the trails today. Can you believe that people actually have to work on their birthdays? Shouldn’t your birthday automatically be a personal holiday? Because it is not a holiday for her, this photo above of Laura was from when we were out exploring the trails at Pinson Mounds State Archaeological Park back in the fall. I never had shared this photo, but it was perfect for today.
As for many people this year, this is actually Laura’s second birthday in a pandemic. But at least we are not as sequestered in our home as we were for her birthday last year. We still will not be going to a restaurant to eat for a celebration. But at least this year things are a little more normal than they were last year.
Here is a bonus photo from the same Pinson Mounds visit. I really thought I had shared these before, but I had not. And they are too good not to share!
I have said it often before, but I am very thankful for Laura, because she is perfect for me. I am happy to celebrate the day she was born, because life would not be anywhere near as fun if she had not been born. She is a blessing to so many people, especially to me.
Here’s hoping it is a wonderful birthday and a year of great things!
Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. - Proverbs 31:25-26
