It's no secret, I think the sun rises and sets with my husband. I love him beyond what words can say, and I'm proud to say he is not only my husband, but my best friend. I'm proud that he has always followed his dreams of adventure, even though I am sure, people in his life were less than enthusiastic with his decisions. Without him in my life, I would not have grown the wings I needed to bust out of my safe cocoon, and learn to fly and take some risks.
He is a good man, and though he may march to the beat of his own drum, fundamentally, he has a soul and morals, that always does the right thing no matter what others might do. It's no surprise I'm sure, to know that I am so very proud of him and the man he is, and that he honored me, by taking me as his wife.
I was told of a conversation he had with my niece today on his birthday, asking him about his life. He told her that he was happy with his life and all that he had accomplished. That the list of items he had made for himself long ago was pretty much checked off. Further more, like myself, should it be that his time is up on earth, he was satisfied and had no regrets. The thing is, we still have so much more we want to add to the list, and I have no doubts, that if it is within his powers to make them a reality, he will. He is the "can do" person to my "what if" personality and that is what makes us such a great team.
Happy Birthday Craig, I love you, and may you always continue to follow your dreams, reach for the stars, and take all from this journey of life that you can. I'll be honored to always occupy the passenger seat right beside you!
