Happy Birthday Patrick!

Patrick turns 25 today. He doesn't like to make a big deal out of birthdays so we're playing it pretty low key. But I wanted to journal a few (25) of the things I love about him...

1. He loves the Lord.

2. He has the best smile/laugh ever!

3. He says WHATEVER he thinks.

4. He's silly with kids.

5. He's quick to forgive.

6. He's quick to ask forgiveness.

7. He can't sing worth a lick...and lets me laugh at him b/c of it.

8. He'll dance with me when I ask.

9. He smells so good!

10. He's a hard worker
11. He's self motivated in just about everything.

12. He's not afraid to stand up for truth.

13. He points me to Jesus.

14. He loves his family.

15. He's so smart.

16. He loves me even though he knows so much about me.

17. He likes to live simply.

18. He does things for me just because he knows it means a lot.

19. He'd go EVERYWHERE in gym shorts and a t-shirt, if I'd let him:).

20. He's a good friend.

21. He's a thinker and has taught me to think more analytically.

22. He's patient with me when I interupt 20x while he's trying to do homework

23. He's good with having his priorities in order...and helps me see when mine are off.

24. He takes care of me and loves me extremely well!


Go here to wish him a happy birthday!


  1. This is a great idea for a Happy Birthday post! Number 19 made me laugh, because my husband is exactly the same way - and I don't let him go everywhere in his t-shirts and holey jeans either, even though he would if I wasn't around! ;-)

  2. I absolutely love this!!! I too love #19!! Except my husband loves to wear these khaki shorts with whatever shirt he has at the time!! Happy Birthday Patrick!! (btw, mine was the 24th of August!!)
