Happy Birthday to the TWINS!!!

Thursday, May 27, 2010

Twenty six years ago today two little miracles were born!  Matt & Grace were born 3 months premature, so when I say that they were miracles, I mean it.  They both had to have major surgery and spent many months in the hospital.  I don't want to go into the details of that horrible time that Matt's mom has told me about, but I want to celebrate the life that they live! 

I was so blessed to meet this family a little over two and a half years ago-first cousin Rachel, and then Grace.  We quickly formed a unique friendship and spent all spring & summer together.  Grace is truly one of a kind.  She is strong, stubborn, hard headed, independent, but also loving, caring, and soft hearted.  She has gone through many personal battles throughout her life & has always ended up on top. I couldn't have asked for a better sister in law or aunt for my children.  Grace, you amaze me in so many ways!

And then there is Matthew.  Grace & Rachel introduced Matt and I two years ago.  I knew he'd be a great friend, but nothing more. We'd meet up for weekly happy hours & enjoyed each others company.  Matt was the loud one in our crowd.  He always had to be the center of attention.  Matt asked me out on a date one night and I thought he was joking, but he wasn't.  A week later we went on the worst date of both of our lives. Then we spent the weekend at the lake with our friends for the twins birthday & something clicked.  We have been together ever since.  Matt is without a doubt the most loud, annoying, stubborn man that I've ever met, but he is also the most compasionate, tender hearted, and loving person that I know.  He is my best friend, my rock, my other half.  Matthew, your work ethic, stubborness, and your ablilty to put up with me on a daily basis amazes me.  I thank God daily for you, your life, and for God putting us together, and allowing us to create a life together. 

This goes without saying, but God had some special plans for Matt & Grace when He brought them into this world twenty six years ago.  Happy Birthday you too! I love you both & I hope you have an amazing day!
