It is my hubby Allan's birthday today, and of course i should definitely dedicate this entire post to the man who I've dedicated my life to.
Allan is my best-est friend ever -- the only person who knows me inside and out, never judging me and forever patient with me, my quirks and my flaws. Despite our differences (in almost everything, particularly in our upbringing and life's experiences), we get along really well! We hardly ever fight (knock on wood!), and when we do it usually is a really big deal and we make it a point to resolve the issue right to the very root until it's totally rid of our life forever. Allan is one really cool guy, both as a husband and as a father. We're a perfect mix, actually -- him being really cool, laid back, objective and positive, and I being all frazzled, anxious, panicky and pessimistic. When I see a situation as half empty, he'll see it half full. Combined we make a glass filled to the brim! I hold on to him when I am down, and he lifts me up when I'm drowning in my concerns. Allan is every bit of the husband I prayed God for, and I feel so blessed that God must love me this much to actually grant me my heart's deepest desire. And so I will promise to love him just as much, and even more, as my way of honoring God for His love and faithfulness to me.
Allan is my one true love in my life here on earth. Without him I would not have my precious Nicky with me and my life would not be as great as it is now. Allan and I have been through a lot of rough patches in the last 8 years. Our love for each other and for the Lord has seen us through those times, and will still see us through to the next decades.
To my dearest, sweet Allan. I love you so very much. Happy Birthday and Happy Valentine's Day, honey :-)
