Happy Birthday Eric!

Today is my sweetie pie's 48th birthday! My husband is camera shy, so I do not have very many pictures of him! I took this one last year when we drove up to Portland.

I am so thankful for this man! He is a wonderful husband and excellent father! Eric works so hard. He has amazing strength and energy. I know I am a lucky girl to have such a great man for my husband. I am crazy about him! We were high school sweethearts, he was 17 and I was 16! Eric is the strong and silent type, although around the family he can get pretty loud and pretty funny! Laughing is important to both of us and we make sure we do it every day! I am blessed because Eric is a really easy going man and he is very easy to be around. He is the leader of our home, but he is not overbearing or demanding. He is very understanding and very forgiving. He is my rock.


I am so thankful that 48 years ago today a little blond haired blue eyed boy was born! We are having a family dinner for him tonight and all the kids will be able to make it! That is the best present of all!

Love, Sharon

Happy Birthday to your ERIC....
We too were HS sweethearts, and are still sweethearts, like you both.

We now watch Ax-Men and I think and pray for your husband.

I love to read your blog. Your post today sounded like you were describing me and my husband. My husband was killed in a plane crash a couple months ago near Salem and I miss him sooooo much. It makes me happy to read about your happiness. Love him like there is no tomorrow. Pam
