Today is his 28th birthday.
(Yes, that's my spouse. No, he doesn't always look like this.)
He tells me to look on the bright side when things are awful. He always knows just where the bright side is hiding. He cooks me dinner because he knows I'm a terrible chef. He takes out the trash because he knows it's my least favorite task. He tells me I look beautiful when I'm not wearing any makeup. He kisses me when I have morning breath. He fixes things, builds things and puts everything back together. He's the glue that holds us together.
If I'm a good anything--a good person, a strong woman or a great wife-- it's because my husband is such a good man. So on today, his day, I thank him for making me a better person. He truly is my better half.
