For this, I’m thankful…..

Tomorrow is Rodd’s 36th birthday. I have been blessed to have him as “mine” for the last 14 years. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect man for me. God knew exactly what I needed, and sent me Rodd……
These are a few of my favorite things about Rodd……

He loves the Lord
He LOVES to laugh
He’s extremely generous
He accepts me as I am (if you know me well, you know that’s a HUGE sacrifice on his part!)
He loves my family
He has breakfast every Saturday morning with my parents because he loves hanging out with them.
He loves taking “photo excursions” with me and is always extremely patient when I get immersed in a shot and forget that anyone else is around.
He loves hiking and is always patient with me lagging behind.
He adores kids and is a child magnet! Kids love Rodd…..he just has a way with them.
He’s very laid back and doesn’t get uptight about things. He keeps me grounded as I tend to freak out. He’s calming for me……
He loves his mother and treats her with respect
His favorite food is spaghetti
He loves drinking homemade wine at Mom & Dad’s
He loves gardening and making things grow
He mows around my baby bird nests in the yard so he won’t scare them. ๐Ÿ™‚
He loves to sew and he’s awesome at it!!!! (he gets embarrassed when I tell people that)
He appreciates nature and the beauty God has created in the world around us.
He makes me laugh
He is probably the most selfless person I have ever met (my mother is the only one I know who might give him a run for that title….)
He inspires me to be a better a person
He is my true love…..the one created just for me

Happy Birthday Rodd!!! I love you……
