Happy Birthday, Marshall!

When I look into your eyes, I see me as you see me.
You make me feel beautiful.
You make me feel worthy.
You make me feel full, happy, loved.

When I look into your eyes, I see your love for our children
And my emotions get caught in my throat and tears beg to be released.

When I look into your eyes, I see our past-
Where we’ve come from, how we’ve grown.
I see the good and the bad,
And I am grateful for both.

When I look into your eyes, I see our present-
Chaos may seem to rule,
But love and faith are really guiding our way.

When I look into your eyes, I see our future-
Birthdays, graduations, weddings,
Growing and learning together
But remaining true to ourselves.

I hope that when you look into my eyes that you feel handsome,
worthy, full, happy, loved.
Because you are.

(I didn’t post this on your birthday like I wanted to, but it’s cool…we can just pretend it’s today and have cake again, right?)
