Happy Thanksgiving! Happy birthday, Jerry!

I hope you (my fellow Americans) are having a wonderful Thanksgiving Day today with family and friends! We are enjoying having our eldest son, Nathan and his wife, Cori and sons Drew and Simon here with us for Thanksgiving.

Here's an acrostic for you, Jerry, on your birthday:

Having you as my husband completes me
And draws me out of my fortress, giving me
Peace and security, laughter and love,
Pardon and patience,
Year in and year out.

But that is not all….
I enjoy the
Rhythm of our shared life,
The dependable consistency and
Hope, that blessed hope we share,
Dearest Jerry;
Awesome he-man with magnificent pecs,
You know me as no one else knows me,

Just as I am, all my strengths and
Every flaw…demonstrating
Real love, sacrificial love.
Revel in these golden years and enjoy this,
Your 62nd birthday. Happy birthday, JerBear.
Hope you've had a great day.
