happy birthday baby ;)

my loveToday I celebrate 31 years of the most amazing man I know.  Though Trey only came into my life in 2007, I know that on March 5th, 1982 (or approximately 9 months earlier), God created my soul mate.

From the moment I met Trey, I knew he was something special.  He was smart and funny, gentle and kind…and those baby blues blew me away.  I knew he was good for me because I couldn’t wait to introduce him to my parents. Right off the bat, Trey made me want to be a better person.  God brought us together at a time in my life when I really needed a spiritual role model, and I found one in Trey.

Now I won’t say that I haven’t had any low points since we met (Lord knows I’ve had the lowest low), but God gave me Trey.  Trey, who chose to love me when God told him to even thought I was impossible to love.  If Jesus is my Savior, then Trey was the tool He used to rescue me from The Pit.

Trey is one of the most intelligent people I’ve ever met.  He knows things I could never begin to understand, and yet he can explain almost anything to anyone in a way they can understand it.  He always know the perfect analogy to make any problem relatable.

He’s also a very patient man.  When faced with a difficult person or situation, Trey shows more grace and diplomacy than I could ever muster.  When I would want to kick someone in the face, Trey can just take a deep breath and deal with even the most frustrating circumstance.

Trey loves with his whole heart:  me, his family, his friends, his God, and his life’s work.  He gives his all every day and constantly puts others before himself.

After months of studying Proverbs 31, I’m still nowhere close to being the Wife of Noble Character.  But every day, no matter how I might fail him, Trey makes me feel like the best wife int he world.  He’ll even tell people that he’s so blessed to have me in his life – little does he know that the blessing is all mine.

Trey tells me I’m beautiful every single day – even when I feel fat and gross and haven’t showered or changed out of my pajamas.  He kisses me hello and goodbye each day when he leaves the house and each evening when he comes home.  He calls me his better half – but he is mine.

Trey goes out of his way almost daily to help others.  Whether it’s holding a door open for a stranger or completely rebuilding a friend’s computer, he’s happy to help.  Even when I feel that others take advantage of his willingness to help out, he doesn’t complain.

He is the best man I know.  I love and respect him more than I could ever say and I will never be able to honor and serve him the way he deserves – but I vow to spend the rest of my life trying.

Happy birthday, Love of My Life.  I thank God for you every day.  You will never know how very much you mean to me.  I love you INFINIMOST!!!
