Welcome to week THIRTEEN of my dear, dear friend Patty Wysong's From i A 2 Z 4 U and me. We're work through the alphabet - one letter each Tuesday. No rules, other than your post has to relate to the letter of the week. Link up at Ordinary Lives and check out everyone else's post. Click on the graphic above for more details, and stop by Patty's blog on Tuesday or later to link up.
You MAY have noticed that I'm posting MY M post on MONDAY instead of Tuesday. You MIGHT think it was a MISTAKE. But it wasn't. I MEANT to do it. Because, here at MY blog, M stands for MY MARVELOUS MAN, MARC. And today is his birthday.
MARC is God's gift to ME. We've been MARRIED for just over 17 years, and I love him MORE each day. We are definitely a God MATCH. We truly balance each other out. I'm an optimist - he's a realist (though if it weren't his birthday, I MIGHT use the "p" word instead LOL). I'm a feeler - he's a thinker. Our childhood backgrounds are freakishly similar - both born the same year in the same MONTH, both lost our MOMS as kids, both our dads remarried women with two sons, both raised Jewih...need I go on?
He helps ME stay focused and on the right track. He is so very smart. He is, without a doubt, a MARVELOUS father - he just loves MONKEYING around with the kids. He certainly knows how to snap ME out of a bad MOOD. He loves ME way MORE than I deserve, and takes care of ME as MUCH as he is able. He is extremely compassionate, loving, and fun. And I'd gladly MARRY him all over again.
Has his life been easy? Absolutely not. He has MANY health issues that have made life difficult for him, especially over the past eight years or so. But MY MARVELOUS MAN, MARC has persevered, with the help of our Lord and those who have loved and come alongside us in the name of Him.
I love you, MARC. I can't possibly MENTION every way that you have improved MY life, and everything you MEAN to ME.
I love you, MARC. Happy Birthday!
