Thirty-seven was a really hard year for my mister.
Through the most difficult year of his life I watched him navigate each new hardship with grace.
He reacted with wisdom and kindness, even when it took great effort.
I knew he was quite a catch before year thirty-seven, but in the past year I have learned what an amazingly strong and good man I am lucky to know.
He has not responded to all of the challenges with anger. Instead he has worked so hard to consider others and care for his family.
So, while it was a hard year it was a year of great change.
Today Eric is thirty-eight and I know that this next year will have so many good things. All of these challenges have been paving the way for a very exciting new year.
Happy birthday to the love of my life.
