The Most Important Day

I've tried to approach this post from various angles and have written and deleted several paragraphs, but the truth is that some things are nearly impossible to explain in a way that others can relate to. Forty-six years ago today, the person who has transformed my life in more positive ways than I could have conceived of was born. This day is more precious to me than any other because he is more precious to me than anything.

Lots of people say that unconditional love does not exist, but I know it does because I've experienced it and it's nothing short of a miracle. Living with that miracle everyday through my husband is the greatest gift life can give a person. I can't begin to celebrate this day in a way which suits its importance to my life, but I'm going to try.

Happy Birthday to your most loved one! I hope you have a great day!....Any surprises you're planning that you can let us in on? ^_^

Honestly...I need ideas. My husband's birthday is on Saturday, and he wants nothing more than a pizza and a birthday cake (and only because I suggested it!). What kind of gift do you give someone who doesn't want one?

I wish him many more years of health and happiness together with you!
