Today is Chris’ 29th birthday! (Since Afghanistan time is ahead of us, it’s been his birthday for a while already, but it’s now officially his birthday stateside.)
Chris, we miss you and love you. I feel sad that we’re spending the “birthday season” apart, but my heart was so warmed to hear the girls sending you their sincere birthday wishes over the phone.
You’re a wonderful husband and father, and are managing to keep that up even across all these miles. Thank you for being you. Cliche, sure, but very true.
Hopefully there’s some surf & turf awaiting you in the cafeteria tonight. Enjoy the beautiful mountain scenery and some sunshine! (Find the silver lining, right?)
