Happy Birthday, Graham!

Happy birthday to my sometimes silly, sometimes serious, always caring husband.  Another year has gone by in a flash and not a single gray hair in sight.  Thank you for singing songs with me, even though you feel embarrassed; for picking up the screw driver and finishing off a project, even though I swear I will do everything by myself; for coming with me to the flea market when I’ve twisted my ankle, even though your duty was to act like Vanna White; for holding a stiff upper lip during scary times for me, even though you were just as scared;  for waking up early and working hard every day with enthusiasm, even though I start my work morning in pajamas; for watching a mind-boggling sunset and pointing out every little feature of the highlighted horizon, even though it’s cold outside; for learning to bite your tongue the few times I do drive, even though I have horrific driving skills; for always offering to share at a restaurant, even though we usually end up not sharing at all; for continuing to smile and look at the positives in life, even though life can beat us up at times.  You an inspiration to me every day, even though I don’t always show it.  Happy birthday, bunks!!
