Happy Birthday To My Dearest Husband, Roger~

Our early birthday celebration last weekend with our families in Idaho~

Happy Birthday dear; I am wishing for you a wonderful day. I am hoping that you can  have a few hours today to enjoy your Birthday.  I love you with all of my heart and soul. I am so grateful that you are my Eternal companion. I love your kind and loving heart. I know that you are a true and faithful disciple of Christ.  You have always been loving, sweet, caring and giving in our relationship.Thanks for loving me even when I mess up. You have such a forgiving heart.   You have always been respectful to me in all things.  I feel from you a deep love. Our love for each other is strong and beautiful and hard to really define in words.
 I am eternally  grateful for our temple marriage. I look forward to our eternity together. 
 I  know and feel that  perhaps we knew each other well in the pre-existence. I am  sure that I chased you around  that sphere and that we did promise to find one another in this life. The world terms this as a soul mate. I  term this as eternal love. Our years together have been filled with deep joy. Thanks you for being the best husband ever.
You are such a good father and grandfather and now great grandfather. I know that our children love you deeply and recognize how much you love them. You have worked hard to be a good provider and father. You have given each of our children beautiful father's blessings through the years. I love that they still seek you out for counsel and blessings. You have been a wonderful example of what a good husband and father should be.
On this day I pray that you will know the love that we all have for you. Thanks  for caring tenderly for our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

There are countless times that you have given hours to your children; many of which they are unaware of. There were so many middle of the night challenges with sick little ones and you often walked the floor with them  giving me a welcomed break. When they were growing up, I remember so many times when they  just needed you. You were there with wise counsel that they sometimes defined as a lecture. Now in their own parenting they recognize how hard you tried to guide them. You have always been there for them. 
Now when we note that there is a struggle or trial going on with one of our family members; we  spend time in the temple and on our knees in prayer over their concerns. We have always sought the guidance of the Lord in  handllng serious concerns with our posterity. 

We truly want "No Empty Chairs" in our eternal family. I love that we pray together sometimes in tears over these wonderful children that we have been blessed with. I know that the spouses of our children love you and know how much you and I love them. They each have such choice eternal companions and we feel so blessed to call them all our children. 
Have a blessed birthday celebration and enjoy some sweet moments this day knowing that you are greatly loved by me. In closing these birthday thoughts I want to share some words from your birthday card: 
"You tease me with your eyes and thrill me with your kiss, Impress me with your mind, remind me love is bliss. You feel my world with color even when the weather's gray and have me smiling  with thoughts of you all day. You move me like no other and I can't help but let it show...I'm so much in love with you (as if you didn't know). 
Happy Birthday dear Roger~
