Today is my boyfriend, CJ's 30th Birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! I came back to life when I met you. I love with all my heart.

When I met him, everything just seemed to fall into place. Of course we have our ups & downs but I am so lucky to have someone in my life that tells me they love me everyday. He makes me smile and want to hear all the sappy love songs. hehe. Happy Birthday to the best boyfriend I've ever had!

His Mom this morning did a very interesting thing...Apparently in a snow storm back in 1982 this lady went to a convenience store and found a birthday card. The birthday card had a woman holding a baby but the words on the front of the card were for an adult's eyes. The phrases are so heartfelt, like I will pick you up when you fall but I will be there for you to learn to get up on your own...or you will always be my lil one, even if you grow tall...She purchased this card that cold February day.

She vowed to give him this card on his 30th Birthday. No Sooner, no later.

Out of all the events of 30 years...somehow CJ's Mom never let that card get too far away. This morning in 2012 she gave him that card she waited so long to give him. It was truly beautiful because he was moved to tears. Happy Tears. Cj really isn't a card guy but he vowed to never lose this card.

What an awesome idea...When I have kids I want to do something like that. I hardly throw out anything so I might be able to keep it for 30 years.

"Happy Birthday Sweetie...Yes I'll play Call of Duty with you now..."
