First off, Happy Birthday to my best friend. He is the guy that has stood by my side through it all. He knows how to make me laugh, comfort me when i’m down, and put an instant smile on my face. He makes me whole. When I look at him, i’m insanely proud of the man he is. He constantly serves our family through working hard, cleaning the dishes, taking out the trash, filling up my car with gas, cleaning the house, you name it. If he sees a need, especially when it comes to me or Brooke, he meets it. He constantly shows us love and brings so much laughter to our house. Brooke and I instantly light up when he walks in the door. He puts God first, always shows grace, serves our family, and loves me and Brooke like crazy. I am an incredibly lucky lady to call you my husband, Kevin Clarke. Know that you are admired, so loved, and respected. My prayer is that this year would bring you success, joy, laughter and a whole lot of love. Happy 29th Birthday Kevin Clarke. I am so blessed to do life with you.
