(This is Jonathan hijacking Lesley’s blog for a post)
This past year has only confirmed and solidified what I already knew, that I have the most amazing wife ever. Lesley I am sorry if my writing is not up to your blog’s level of quality, but hopefully you can see past my grammar mistakes and feel special on your 30th birthday.
Lesley you care for me in a way I did not know possible. You have nursed my physical needs, and been there for all the blood and guts without blinking an eye. You have kept me on a good path mentally. You have encouraged me relentlessly. You have only deepened your relationship with God and in turn helped me with mine. You have remained positive in the face of an angry storm named cancer. You have done all this while raising, and raising very well, a six month old baby.
You clean up poop (Anna’s), throw-up (mine), and all the other messes that have come with a baby and a husband who sometimes acts like one. You continue to be a good friend to the awesome women in your life. I love that you are able to use your incredible gift of writing more and more. You have had to put aside your own wants and desires for a time and for that I am forever grateful.
This past year I have fallen deeper and deeper in love with you. We’ve been dating or married for over 10 years and I know today more than ever that you are my perfect fit. I love you, and am excited to see where your 30’s will take you and us.
Now, to all of Lesley’s readers out there, here is a small request. Knowing how Lesley is so good at encouragement I wanted to give something back to her on her birthday. I would ask that if you read this leave a comment about Lesley. It can be as simple as Happy Birthday or as long as this letter. Let your words be an encouragement to Lesley on her 30th Birthday.
P.S. Isn’t Lesley sexier than ever!
