~Happy Birthday Jeff~

Today is a very special day at our house. This is the day we celebrate the birth of a wonderful person. Today is Jeff's birthday!

I could never say enough nice things about Jeff. He is one of the most caring, compassionate, smart, and generous people I know.

He loves the P's x 3, books, music, and even me. He is the kind of person who gives money to a man standing on the street asking for money and the Salvation Army collectors every time he passes them. He organizes an angel tree every Christmas to give needy children in our area a good Christmas. He is not afraid to show emotion and love. I joke and tell him he would hug a pole if he thought the pole was sad.

He supports me in every way possible. He was so proud of me when our house was featured in Country Sampler and carried the magazine around showing everyone and would not take any of the credit for it. He encouraged me to contact A Primitive Place magazine and ask if I could do some writing for them. He didn't even flinch when I told him I wanted to repaint the entire house after we had just painted it two years ago. He works as hard as I do on the house and never gets frustrated with my strive for perfection and OCD tendencies.

This world is a much better place for having Jeff in it and he has made my life and the life of everyone who knows him so much better. I feel very thankful and blessed to get to share my life with such a beautiful person.

Please join me and wishing Jeff a wonderful birthday and pray that the coming year is one of the best yet!

All My Best,

Happy Birthday Jeff!! I hope this coming year is the best one yet!!
Dan, it doesn't surprise me that Jeff is the kind of person he is because good people attract other good people to their lives so it is natural the person you share your life with would be like that. I am so happy you have such a supportive loving caring partner in your life.
May you both have a blessed New Year!! Hugs!!

Aw honey this is such a great post but I already knew Jeff had to be the best person on earth if he was your partner. Be sure and give him a late birthday hug from me. Maybe I can make him some candy or something.
