Every now and then the sound of your voice carries up the stairs and I find comfort in remembering that you are just a few steps away if I should need you.
Every now and then I catch a glimpse of you loving on our little ones and playing with the reckless abandon of a child, and it makes me smile.
Every once in awhile I find your arms around me because you sense that I need it.
Sometimes I find an email in my inbox or a text message on my phone, for no other reason than just to say I love you.
Most of the time I get too busy to acknowledge how blessed I feel to have you in my life. I fail to tell you how the little things you do make me happy; how you, more than anyone, can turn my day around because of who you are and how you treat me.
So today, you should know that you make my heart pound. You should know that I am grateful every day that you were born, and that you are such an important part of me.
Happy, Happy Birthday!
