39-word love letter

The Engineer is turning 39 years old today!  I thought about writing a list of the top 39 things I love about him, but, well, 39 is a lot and might bore you to tears.  Plus, he's not generally a blog reader.  Thirty-nine things might bore him to tears.  So instead, here is a 39-word love letter (not including the "to" and "from" parts) to the love of my life.

Dear Engineer,

I love you for...
...your steadfastness.  I can absolutely trust you.
...your intelligence.  Smart is sexy!
...your fathering heart.  Our kids are blessed.
...your growth.  You keep getting better.
...your strength.  I feel safe with you.

Happy birthday!

Love,
Beth

Thirty-nine years ago a baby boy was born.

As he grew, he turned into quite the catch.  I'm glad he got snagged on my hook!

P.S.  Psst....  Stay tuned....  There is a giveaway coming up right here on C. Beth Blog that I am really excited about!  I'll be working in conjunction with another blogger that I'm a fan of.  That's all I'm gonna say for now.

Happy Birthday, Engineer! What a beautiful letter, Beth. Although, I have to say, being the ditz that I am, I misread one line as "... your growth. You keep getting bigger." Which made me laugh out loud cuz that's probably what I'd say about The Husband. Then I reread it and laughed even harder ... sorry Engineer! I'm sure you're not getting bigger.

So nice! Happy birthday! I turn the big "33" on Friday. Not so excited and I certainly won't be getting any wonderfully crafted love letters - unless you want to write one for dh!!
