Today we are celebrating 27 years of Adam!
I’m really glad that I’ve gotten to share 8.5 of those 27 years with him. He has loved me well and stood beside me faithfully the whole time (6 long years of dating +2.5 fast years of marriage).
At the risk of being mushy, which I utterly detest, I want share a few reasons why I love Adam. I don’t ponder these things enough or share them with him enough.
Adam has a pure, child-like faith. He trusts the Lord completely and without question. He reminds me often that God is faithful and will always take care of us. He does not worry.
Adam is faithful. I can trust him. I have never questioned his faithfulness to me since I met him. Furthermore, he is patient and so graciously overlooks my many shortcomings. He sees the best in everyone for that matter.
I jokingly call Adam “positive Paul” and myself “negative Nancy.” He has a positive outlook on almost everything in life. It’s refreshing, as I tend to view the glass half empty. On this same note, he’s almost always happy. He comes in the door with a big grin on his face after long, tiring days of work. He just loves life and is thankful for every day.
The man has an excellent work ethic. He works SO hard to provide for our family (and goes to seminary full-time), and he does it with such a sweet spirit, never complaining.
He could make friends with a wall. Mr. Social to the extreme.
He’s a man of many interests. There are few hobbies/sports that he hasn’t tried. Our college friends can attest to this.
He makes me laugh. A lot. Particularly when he impersonates Frank Sinatra. Our kids will love it. He’s going to be such a fun dad!
Happy Birthday, Adam! I love you, and I am so thankful for you.
