Today is Hubby's Birthday. And ever since I've known him, his response to this date has been, "It's just an ordinary day." When I say, "Happy Birthday," he replies, "it's not special - it's just another day." Of course, I have tried each year to show him how wrong he is, how special this day is, indeed - there was a surprise party with family and friends the year he turned 50 (he really was surprised - and I think a bit disappointed that there was no actual sale going on at the golf club...). After years of being a single dad and bachelorhood, we've celebrated alone, with family, at home, weekends away....and yet, still the same "it's just an ordinary day." My humble Irishman will never change.
But that won't stop me from trying to convince him how special this day is to me, how much his birthday celebrates the life that has come into my life. Being the Pin-a-holic that I am, I have a board devoted just to hubby, where most of the pins are simply special quotes that warm my heart, reminding me of him. So today, in honor of my Irishman's not-so-ordinary birthday, I'll share some of those with you, hoping he'll check in and see them as well. :)
Happy birthday, to my best friend, my soul mate, my clown ninja, my always humble Irishman. I love you.
