That man of mine...

.


Today is a very special day in my world.  It's my husband's birthday.  He's so much a part of me, and I'm the luckiest girl in the world to have him.  Today's Photo of the Day on National Geographic is absolutely the best photo to be chosen for R's birthday.  It's really very symbolic...R chases his dreams and blazes trails like this cowboy and horse are tearing across this prairie.  He's a man alone ahead of the pack (I envision a group of riders far behind him to the left of this photo, trying to catch up with him). 

R is quite literally my everything.  He makes me smile every day.  He's a man of wisdom, humor, patience, kindness, intelligence, and vigor.  He's a very loving father, son, brother, and uncle.  I've never heard him raise his voice in anger even once in all the years we've been together.  A better man you'll never meet.  We had such a scare earlier this year when we could have lost him...that makes me even more thankful to have him in my life.

Did you ever hear how I met R?  We were next door neighbors.  Funny, isn't it?  It just goes to show that we were meant for each other.  Fate brought us together because you can choose your friends and your enemies, but you can't choose your neighbors...

What a wonderful post, Dennice! A very happy birthday to Ron, who is also an absolute gentlemen, one smart cookie, and possesses a keen (and hysterical) sense of humor! xoxo Brenda
