You've had a crappy year, I know. You've had to claw your way out of someone else's mid-life crisis and figure out how to protect your family from the aftermath.
But you've done it - you're dealing with it still, and it amazes me that you found your way through the past year with dignity, with grace and with your sense of humor intact.
I hope you know how proud I am of you. And I hope that this year, you get every happiness there is to be gotten. You deserve it all.
Happy, happy birthday. I love you.
