Happy Birthday to my favorite soldier

  • Because you take care of me when I am sick.
  • Because your face lights up when you see joy in mine.
  • Because you love my family.
  • Because you let me watch my Tivo'd shows anytime I want.
  • Because you cook dinner sometimes, too.
  • Because you write me real letters.
  • Because your eyes sparkle when you smile.
  • Because you let me decorate our home the way I want to.
  • Because you encourage me to be healthier.
  • Because you work hard.
  • Because you buy me flowers on your birthday.
  • Because you are patient when I am forgetful. Over and over and over again.
  • Because you can't wait to be a dad.
  • Because you let me buy the expensive pots and pans and then you admitted they were worth it.
  • Because you are humble.
  • Because you are not afraid to apologize.
  • Because you are committed to us for the long haul.
  • Because you are a hero to many people.
  • Because I am so proud of you.

I love you, Tommy.

Happy, happy birthday to you...

I'm ready to celebrate with you as soon as you walk in that door. :)
