Today my husband turns 48. As each day together passes, I see more and more the softness and depth of his heart. I can't imagine a more giving husband or a more patient and devoted father. This has been his best role yet.
All morning, Abe has wanted his dad. It's as if he somehow knows to be extra affectionate today. Abe's not a huge cuddler, but several times today he's climbed up on Ted and laid down on his chest to suck his thumb: Abe's way of saying "Happy Birthday, Da-da."
Thank you to all who have given to Charity: Water for Ted's birthday (there's no cut-off time in case anyone else still wants to give). For several days last week, he'd stalled out at $1,960.48, the year he was born followed by his age in cents. He thought that was pretty cool. But now, on his birthday, he's surpassed his goal of raising funds for half a well at the current total of $2,104.48, with the possibility of even more to come.
Happy birthday, indeed.
