ANDREW: More than just a Hobby!!!


I’m usually great at remembering dates, but I don’t remember the exact date Mimi introduced you to me because I never thought we would ever go beyond that polite exchange of nods and handshake… However, I vividly remember that cool January evening you requested that I take a walk with you in life… 😀  Yup, that was the way you put it… So we took a walk… a literal one at first… and then a binding one…

We are still walking… and I have never regretted embarking on this walk with you. Neither have I grown weary or thirsty, even though we started out this walk 7 years ago. 7 years of comforting strength from you when weariness beckoned… 7 years of ever flowing refreshing streams to keep every thirst at bay…

Your heart of gold. Your smile. Your kindness. Your intelligence. Your biceps. Your devotion to God. Your teach-ableness (hehehe… that’s a word I coined o).  Your loyalty.  Your sense of humour. Your hair. Your consideration of the gate man and waiter. Your love for family….

I could go on and on… These are the things I love about you.

You provide for me. You encourage me. You correct me. You lead me. You pray for me. You protect me. You inspire me. You support me. You love me….

I could go on and on… These are the things I respect about you.

… And no matter what gift I give to you today, it can never match up to what God has given me in the form of you. Happy Birthday darling!!!

This is for you, with all my Love…

happy birthday to my husband

    You are the woman for me
    Though others may try
    They won’t find me
    No matter how much they cry

    You are the woman I see
    My destiny and purpose
    Entwined around thee
    All others can only assume, I suppose?

    The one who makes life better
    With whom I want forever
    I feel like a pacesetter
    Because you are my forever

    I close my eyes this instant
    I see my life before me
    Though all of it seems instant
    But with you I’d rather be

    My friend, my lover, my wife
    Closer than a brother ever
    Intimately giving life
    Bringing out the best in me, my lever.

    I love you so much, truly
    I tell everyone e’en facebook
    And if they prefer to be surly
    I’ll tell them sit on this hook.

    I pour my love on you
    As though it was perfume
    Till the scents speak to you
    Through your senses and the fume

    I love you, my lovely angel
    You came to help my life
    Even though ur not evangel
    Your words reshaped my life..
