Happy Birthday to my new favourite 40-year-old

“My most brilliant achievement was my ability to be able to persuade my wife to marry me.” – Winston Churchill

Last weekend while cleaning out our storage locker I found some old pictures of  my wife in her 20’s and 30’s. I took a few minutes to flip through some of them and came to a realization. First, I’m a very lucky man. And second, my wife has become even better looking with age.

While flipping through the pictures I saw her progression into the polished, poised and beautiful woman she is today.

Today my lovely wife celebrates her 40th birthday.

I’m not sure it’s possible to match the love and affection she showered upon me on my birthday. But I hope she enjoys her day as much as I did mine.

Though I haven’t been there for all her birthdays, the thing that makes me happiest today is that I’ll be there for the rest of them.

I love you Lise. Have a wonderful day.
