Today is Dave's birthday
I wonder why God gave Dave to me. And yet I see more and more, the older I get, the longer we're married, the more I let down my armor, why.
I have a lot of armor (Dave's nodding his head right now), but this blog isn't supposed to be about me...it's his birthday.
Anyway, I wonder and I see because Dave loves me sooo much. He honors me and respects me. I know this. I see this. I live this. Dave is the best husband I could ever wish for - even more than wish for (you know I would wish for someone who wouldn't be the best and God has given me the best).
Dave is kind. He is a diplomat and thinks through his words before sputtering them out of his mouth. He retains information like no body else I know (except maybe our son Ian, see yesterday's blog). He is a man of integrity. He stays true to his word. I know in my heart that he will always be true to me and any of his friends. He will/would never betray.
Dave seeks the truth and he will study hard for it. He teaches with a love and passion. he loves to teach.
Now I've got to go and make his favorite chocolate layer cake. All you who know Dave know what he would have you do this day, raise a pint in his honor!
