Today we celebrate Eric. It seems so fitting that he would be born on April Fools Day because he is such a joyous spirit bringing laughter to our home each and every day.
I don’t know what I would without this man. We have grown up together in so many ways. He has loved me from those care-free college years all the way to the mundane days of duty and routine. And even on those most stressful of days, he makes me smile.
He has seen me at my best and at my worst. He’s held my hand in the delivery room, and walked through depression by my side. He’s blind to the 60lbs babies have added to my 5’2” frame and makes me feel beautiful.
He can overlook piles of laundry and step over the endless spray of toys on the family room floor without so much as one complaint. He always pretends to like my cooking and would eat pizza every night to make the kids happy - even it means a night of intense heartburn.
He indulges us in family movie nights, wrestles with out rough and tough Eli and dances across the room with a prissy little Ellie without a word of protest.
He loves us deep. He loves us well. And we are so blessed to celebrate another year with this man!
Happy Birthday, E-Ron. We Love you!!
