It's a particularly special day for me today since it's my wife Sola's birthday. You might wonder what the fuss is all about, but for me it represents just one more opportunity to express (in a more special way) how precious she is to me. In this day and age where marriages hardly last any real length of time, being married to the same woman for 20 years and watching her grow and come into her own, while remaining as beautiful as she was the day I married her, gives me a particularly warm and fuzzy feeling. She is my best friend, my confidante, my sounding board (she even lets me 'barf up my stuff' on her occasionally), and my greatest inspiration for wanting to accomplish God's larger purpose for my life. I know, I know, you're wishing you had a friend like her especially in a generation where too many 'friendships' seem filled with a pervasive mephitic stench. What can I say? We can't all have a Sola so you'll just have to live vicariously through me. So today, I get to brag on my "Babes" as I say HAPPYYYYYY BIRTHDAY!!! If you'd like to brag on her too, drop her a line here wishing her a happy birthday.
