36 Years Ago, Yesterday…

My husband was born.

I’m speaking for him when I say this, but  I’m pretty sure that I can safely say that it took 36 of them before the meaning of life…

the significance of why we’re here…

the reason behind all of this life’s happenings, good and bad up until now…

became clear.

This moment right now (and this goes for ya’ll, too), no matter what you’re doing, where you are or who you are, is just a small moment in a big chain reaction of experiences that began with our first day of birth.

All of us are big, walking works in progress. The way that the weather and the elements erode the earth is the same way in which our experiences erode shape our bodies, minds and souls. Each hardship, joy and lesson we face is just one more priceless part of life that is merely there to prepare us and equip us with the right tools for handling what is next to come.

It’s all been leading up to this.

Isn’t she beautiful?

Hasn’t it all been so worth it? During the real crappy times, did you ever stop to think that maybe that moment was necessary for the big time pay off in the end?

Happy Birthday, Daddy.

Happy Birthday, Husband.

I have a feeling that this year will be your best year yet.

Here’s to many more years to come, full of new knowledge and raw experience….

for this journey is just beginning.

I know there’s more in store, and I can’t wait to embrace it all… together.

I love you. Mia loves you.
