6 years ago today, I had the pleasure of sharing a highly intoxicating fishbowl with the best friend that I had never had. That night as we stumbled..er walked hand in hand out of the bar..er "dancing place", I knew my life would never be the same.
You are everything in my life that is good. I love you beyond anything I could ever express. You are the barney to my baby bop. My #1 and only one. You are my rock and even though I sometimes fail miserably I hope you know that I got your back.
You give to everyone and rarely take anything for yourself. I hope I can continue to learn from your example of compassion and strength and I hope our children grow up to be the man you are today.
I not only say all this because I haven't actually gotten you a present yet either. I mean, I HAVEN'T, but I mean it also.
Happy Birthday my dear love.
I hope this year takes it easy on your aging, weary, 10 years older than me, bones.
Last one today.
