I hope you won’t mind an uninvited guest post. This is not your favorite blogger Shayla, this actually happens to be her husband, who is sneaking onto the blog unbeknownst to her. The reason? It’s Shayla’s birthday! I couldn’t let my beautiful, smart, caring, conscientious, funny, thoughtful, and in all ways wonderful wife go uncelebrated on her birthday, even though I’m certain she would prefer to quietly let this day slip past without any particular acknowledgment—after all, she’s not one to call attention to herself. As bad luck would have it, I’m stuck working 3,000 miles away from home, so I can’t even be there to celebrate for her. I suppose I’ll just have to hope that my words make an acceptable substitute!
Happy birthday to my beautiful bride!
