Thankful For The Birthday Boy

34 years ago a cute little boy was born in a small Mississippi town in the Dirty Delta, and for that I am most thankful. He grew up to be such an upstanding, fine young man and for that I am even more thankful.
I am so thankful he chose me to be his bride. We have had a fun almost 8 years of marriage. This was taken at Alcatraz. I am so blessed to have a husband who will go do crazy things with me....like watch me run 26.2 miles in San Francisco, and in return make me go to Alcatraz with him. (That is where this photo was taken...we were there at dark...eck!) I am also thankful that he was not too proud to wear that pullover because he looks at this picture and almost dies each time. He was cold and had to buy something to keep himself warm before we got on the boat, and this is all he could find. Nothing screams "tourist" louder than that pullover!
He is also the sweet, giving husband who took me to see the Rockettes on his 28th birthday, which was also the opening day of duck season. For that I am very thankful...and can assure you I still hear about it all these years later! I am thankful for his ability to never forget the little things.
I am thankful he is such a wonderful daddy to our sweet baby boy. What a blessing it is to watch him love Henry like he does. It is neat to see how he just became a daddy last Dec 2nd as though he knew exactly what to do. I just love it. I am so thankful for a husband who is a devoted daddy.

I am thankful for his witty sense of humor and that no matter where we travel he has to stop and take photos with statues. I am thankful that he is a hard working man who also knows how to switch gears and have a good time. Yet, I am most thankful he loves Jesus. I am very thankful Jesus gave me this precious man and that today I can wish him a very happy birthday!

Happy Birthday, Randall Wayne!
and Happy Birthday to Daddy's sweet wife, Connie Sue!!

Yeah, I must ditto everything you said about Randall Wayne. If God had let me describe exactly what type sons in law I wished for... I could not have asked for any better than the two I have.
Happy Birthday Randall Wayne..you and Connie Sue get to celebrate together.
