Happy Birthday, Honey!

Today is Rob's birthday! Happy Birthday! We got to talk early this morning and then again late tonight so we all, OK, me and Gabe with Zion and Gideon looking on, sang "Happy Birthday" over the speaker phone. Rob says some of his peers surprised him with a cake and that really warms my heart. On this side the four of us and my friend Jennifer went out to dinner to "celebrate" his birthday. Zion celebrated by peeing on Jen's lap but that's a story for another day. I was actually on top of things enough to have already gotten Rob's gifts mailed out so he got to open them today (I don't know if I would have been able to wait like that). Also, last night he got to drive a Humvee wearing night vision goggles and I think that's a pretty cool "present" that most people won't ever get (I know I'm jealous).

I hope your man had a great birthday despite the fact that he was away from his loved ones.

I hope you're doin' alright too!! I just prayed for you and that you'd feel encouraged and not so lonely today.
