Today is Rick's birthday.

The kids are downstairs putting the final touches on his cards and gift, we have a homemade coconut cream pie chilling in the fridge, and we're anxiously awaiting for the birthday boy to get home from work, so we can celebrate.

Sharing my life with this man brings me so much happiness.

He adds an element of strength, warmth, humor, and stability to my life.  He is my best friend.  My support.  My everything.

Happy Birthday Rick.

Now hurry and get home!

Jane, Vaughn, and Mason
