Dad's "Day" is Done...

 This post is part of Patty Wysong's
  A to Z meme. This week's letter is "D."


A to Z blog hop at Patterings.Yesterday was a special day in our house. It was my husband's birthday (but since husband AND his name don't start with a "D," I had to use one of his other designations - namely, dad to our two adorable children.).

And I could have done a post about him then. On his birthday. I've done that before. More than once. But he might have expected that. THIS way (I think), I get to surprise him.

Marc Stephen Sher is a wonderful, loving, godly man. A fabulous, fun, dedicated dad. A super-wonderful husband. I never doubt that he loves me. Ever.

He completes me in so many ways. God's ideal match for me.

He's been through a lot in the past decade, but he's held onto his faith - and his sense of humor - throughout. He is stronger than he will admit - but I see it every day.

I love you, Marc. I hope your birthday this year was a special one!
