30 years ago a great man was born.
He is one of the most selfless people I know.
He constantly gives of himself, his posessions, his truck, etc. to help others.
He is sympathetic and caring.
He is strong and athletic.
He loves God with all of his heart.
During his commute to work on the train, he spends it reading his Bible.
On our wedding night, he washed my feet and told me he wants to spend his life serving me just like Jesus did.
He is the funniest guy I know. He makes me laugh EVERY day and he works extra hard at it on days that I'm grumpy.
It doesn't freak him out when I cry (which I do a lot).
He is totally HOT!
When I say, "I think I'm low". He always says, "Like Shorty?"
(you know...the song, "Shorty got low, low, low..."???).
And if my blood sugar really is low, he gets me juice and my meter.
He's not grossed out by all of my needles and Diabetes paraphanalia (at least he pretends he's not).
He makes my brother and sister laugh..and that warms my heart.
He playfully calls me Jenny (and I LOVE it)!
He's passionate about the Chicago Bears and faithfully roots them on every season.
He loves his family.
I admired him in college when we were just friends.
Now that he's my best friend, I adore and love him with all of my heart!
Happy 30th Birthday Derek...here's to another 30+ years!!!
