Happy Birthday, Todd!
Today is my brother's 35th birthday. Aside from the fact that Todd is much taller than me, I have always looked up to him. He is one of those guys that make you think, this is what men are supposed to be like. He is kind, funny, strong, loyal, honest, and brave.
He is also in Iraq on his 4th tour. It is a very long time to be away from your family, especially, with a family as cool as his. He has two boys Adam and Lance and one daughter, Amber. His wife, Kim, is amazingly strong. Plus, Todd and Kim are one of those few couples that actually like hanging out together.
My kids talk about Uncle Todd all the time. When Hannah first got cancer Todd sent her a message saying how brave she was. She was beaming ear to ear to hear her brothers, who were clearly impressed, exclaim that "Uncle Todd, thinks YOUR brave!"
I think we will all breathe easier when he comes home. For now, Todd, I hope you have a great birthday. Love you!
