Happy 42nd Birthday Sweetheart!

I have to share my celebration today with the most special person in my world besides God and that is Steven! He turns 42 today and I wanted to share with all of you the most amazing things about this man.

1. He's married to me and for that every day I am thankful if for nothing else.

4. He is willing to help out anyone no matter what they think of him. He truly does have a heart of gold.

5. He's a great cook and when he gets the chance will always cook for all of us.

6. He is a true care giver. I can always rely on him when I am feeling sick or run down, or simply need a break.

7. He is like the energizer bunny. He always finds the energy to keep going and going.

8. He truly does love his mom and dad so much. Thank you for them for giving us Steve!

9. He has been friends with so many people from high school and still is to this day.

10. Everyone who meets Steve instantly likes him. He is a likeable guy!

11. No matter where we go, he always runs into someone he knows. No matter where we are. Go figure!

12. He truly does have a heart of God. He continues to be an example of what I need to work on in my own life.

Sounds like you found one of the good ones. There are still a few around, but not too many. This is a lovely tribute to the man in your life. He is a very handsome dude. I am sure that appealed to you as well. Best wishes to both of you. Lord knows, I cannot remember when I was 42.
