Happy Birthday, Kevin!

I have said it countless times, you are so much more than I deserve. When I think about you, the kind of husband that you are and the kind of father that you are, I am overcome with emotion. I can best sum it up by telling you all of the things that I don't have because of you.

Because of you, I don't ever have feelings of loneliness. You are my constant companion even when absent from me physically.

Because of you, I do not have a fear of the future. You are a man who provides for his family, we are your first priority and the reason that you get up at 4 a.m. and work for 12 hours.

Because of you, I do not harbor feelings of resentment. You value my opinion and cherish the conversations that we have. You appreciate my ideas, even the crazy ones!

Because of you, I do not ever feel like anything else but a woman who is loved and adored.

When we first met and I knew that you were the person that I wanted to spend forever with, it was because of your gentleness and humble spirit. You give of yourself freely, putting the boys and I first in all of your decisions. You make wise decisions and have proven yourself a trustworthy leader.

Simply put, you're my hero. I look at you and I feel safe, sure that everything will be alright. I love you.

I know that it is your birthday but I feel as if I am the one who has been given the gift.
