Today you’re 39. Officially closer to 40 than 30 (Yay!), yet still looking younger than ever. The years are passing by so quickly, and I absolutely love spending every bit of my life with you. I love the way you love me and our kids with all that you have. I love how you change from being geeky to an all-around-guy to a perfect father to our kids. I love sitting back and watch you rock at basically everything you do. I don’t say it often, but I like you to know I am so proud of you. You make me proud.
You are the best partner in the world. You’re always loving and forgiving even when I become cranky, or even when I say something stupid, when I am passive-aggressive, or even when I show my selfish side ( on one too many occasions). You are still there.
For the past 12 years, we’ve shared love, tears and excitement. We’ve envisioned our dreams together and have witnessed them come true before our very eyes. You’ve been there with me through all my struggles. From work problems, to giving birth, to raising a family. You always have a listening ear, and you always laugh at the craziest things I do or say. You relieve my anxieties and cover me with your embrace just when I needed it the most. I’ve been belittled, crushed and pushed to my lowest so many times in this life, but you stayed by my side no matter what.
After going through two complicated pregnancies, my body completely changed. I gained so much weight, I earned a double chin, a flab and was awarded the most awkward stretchmarks. Inspite of all these, you always make sure to let me know I am still the most beautiful of them all. You still date me, love and kiss me like before, and you still rub my back, massage my head even when you’re tired and sleepy or even when your hands hurt. Because for you, my comfort comes first.
Thank you for being my rock Daddy. You’re my joy and my constant reminder that God is always good and that He had planned us from the very start. Thank you for making me your wife and the mother of your kids. Thanks for spending your life with me and reminding me that we don’t need much in this life but God, each other, our kids and family. I hope today is one of your best birthdays ever. You deserve a day that is as special as you are. I love you so much. Happy Birthday Daddy!
