Happy Birthday, Ted! The years are going by so quickly… I can’t believe it! We’re expecting you, Sydney and Bella this afternoon. We love it when you come to visit. I’ve got, what used to be your favorite dish when you were a boy, marinading in the refrigerator. Here’s the birthday dinner menu: Chicken and Pork Adobo, green bean casserole, fruit salad and apple pie. Hmmm, sounds good to me! I’ll probably stick a candle in the pie. You’ve always preferred pie over cake. And that’s okay!
Life isn’t always fair and it certainly hasn’t been fair to you but we’re very proud of you. You’re a great dad to your girls. You’re a good Christian man. God loves you and so do I.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Ted. He’s a good man, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. Please guide him in decisions he makes, watch over him as he drives, works, plays with and guides Sydney and Bella. Keep him safe and well. I love Ted so much and You love him even more!
