Happy Birthday Markus

24 October 2012

I can't believe that you are 30 today.

I remember when I met you. You were 24 and pretty much the oldest person I knew. I knew you were strong and resilient and thoughtful and funny, but I couldn't figure out why you didn't have your shit together. A few years later when I turned 24, I realized that was because it is not the appropriate age for anyone to have one's shit together. So, sorry about that. 

This birthday is a big deal to me. I'm so glad to stop and take pause and be thankful for everything wonderful that has happened to you over the past three decades. It has all been on account on your strong faith, hard work, willingness to learn and grow and love for other people. I could not be more proud to know you and every day that we hang out is the greatest blessing I've known. 

I don't know what I would have become if I hadn't been able to meet you and learn from your example. I want to be better when I'm around you because you are just the real deal when it comes to quality guys, a real Atticus Finch as I love to say. I see our children being great because of how much they respect and want to honor you. I can't wait for them to get excited about making you proud. 

It seems like this is the best it's ever been and it's awesome to think about how things are just going to get so much better. I am so grateful that I got to catch you on your way to 30 and I can't wait to see what the next decade brings to you!

Your wife unit,
