I’m also including a few pictures from before I knew him and one from the year after we were married (when he had the ZZ Top beard).
I’m so thankful that he’s my husband. God has blessed me with this wonderful man for these last 30+ years. He’s romantic, loving, kind, patient, talented, funny and so much more. He’s a great dad who has always loved, supported and encouraged the kids in whatever interests they had.
When I was a teenager my sisters used to always tell me that my boyfriends weren’t good enough for me (o.k., I did make some pretty poor choices early on). Then when I started dating Terry they told me he was TOO good for me. And it’s so true. I’m so glad that he’s stuck it out with me for so long. My mom just loves him and reminds me all the time what a great catch he is.
They celebrated his birthday at work today by decorating his desk with streamers and balloons, enjoying chocolate cake with his team and he got a gift certificate for a free lunch at the cafeteria at work (which has pretty good food). His choice for his special day was to have a nice quiet evening at home, so I made his favorite meal of barbequed ribs, mashed potatoes and green beans. Yes, that’s really his favorite. (No steak, no seafood – what is he thinking?) We also had chocolate cake. Then he opened his presents. Kevin and Amy both called, which was a real treat, then we relaxed for the evening.
So Terry, when you read this, know that I love you forever and I hope you had an extra special day! You’re still as cute as you were in that little red wagon!
