Happy Birthday, Paul

Today is Paul’s birthday!  In the craziness and the busyness of life while at camp, I’m not sure if we are going to get to celebrate as much as I would like.  We went out to eat last Saturday for lunch and I think we are going to have a cake this Friday, but not much today, on his actual birthday.  So, this is my tribute to my husband.

I cannot imagine my life without Paul.  He is my best friend, my rock, the glue that keeps me together.  He is amazing and always knows how to bring me down to another level if I’ve gotten upset or discouraged about something.  Paul has a servant’s heart and always wants to help people (I know he gets that from his dad).  He is very patient and very easy going (which proves difficult at times for me b/c I’m not very patient, but I think we make a good team).

Paul has the ability to always make me a laugh, even when I am in tears over something.  He is a hard worker but knows how to balance time as well, which is a good rub off on me, as well.

Thank you, God, for my wonderful husband.  I could not imagine where I would be if he had not asked me to marry him 3 1/2 years ago.  I still remember the day so clearly and I hope it is always etched in my mind of the day I said yes to become Mrs. Paul Tanner.

Here are some pictures of us through the years that we have known each other.  If you don’t know our story, here’s a recap…
