Ni's Birthday

Ni,

On your special day, I wish you all the happiness that you truly deserve. I pray that you are blessed with good health, peace of mind, success and everything else your heart desires.

I also want to take this time to let you know just how much you mean to me and how important you are in my life. I know I tease you a lot when I say you are so lucky to have me as your wife, but in all truth, I am the lucky one to have you in my life.

Thank you for always standing by me. For your unconditional love and never-ending support. Thank you for always knowing what to say to make me laugh and always knowing what to do to make things right. Thank you for your uncanny ability to read my mind and for the times you understand me more than I seem to understand myself. Thank you for keeping me grounded and for reminding me that life should never be taken too seriously. Thank you for telling me things I don’t want to, but need to hear, and for being the shoulder to cry on when the truth is not so nice.

You have given me the strength to go on, especially at times when I have felt so helpless. Your faith in me has inspired me to be the best I can be. You've helped me understand that loving someone does not mean changing that person, but instead learning to appreciate everything that person has to offer. You've showed me that a marriage is all about compromise, trust, respect and commitment. That it is more than just telling someone you love them. But also showing them through every day actions - even during instances when they are at their most unlovable.

My world is a better place and my life truly a happy one because I have you.

Happy Birthday, Ni.

Always,
Joanne

After spending a few days with you, we can see that you complement each other . And that's what marriage is - a series of compromises and surprises too.
Hope you have a great birthday Jojo!

Thank you for cooking an authentic Filipino breakfast on my birthday, I wish I have spent the day with you but I have to do some emergency work at the office.

Thank you for the nice birthday greeting I really appreciate it and all that you have done for me this couple of years.
