Of Bouquets, Brickbats and Birthdays

First, the bouquet:
He’s my best friend. He’s the first to cheer me on when I’m down. He’s a staunch supporter of my blog. He’s kind, cheerful and generous. In short, he’s a good man, from whichever way you see him.
Then, the brickbat:
He can be my worst critic. He can be crude too (which I disapprove of). He can sometimes have a devil-may-care attitude. He won’t pull punches if you step on his toes. In short, don’t mess with him.
Now, the birthday:
Happy Birthday, Baby!
I just think that it is appropriate for me to declare, to all my blog readers, that I love you. Sort of like a cyber gift! Don’t be embarrassed okay! I know you are smiling!

May God continue to bless my dearest husband with abundant love, joy and happiness forever and a day.

Hello Lita,

This is so sweet. And he says 'thank you' in the best-est way.

When I wished my husband on my blog - for his birthday (a previous blog) and later on our 25th anniversary this year, he came home and said his thanks. 'Why didn't you leave a comment?' I asked. 'Shy lah,' was the sheepish reply. Sigh.

Lita, you don't know how lucky you are. But maybe, you do ;)

Happy birthday, Stephen. And, many happy returns of the day.

Hiya, I am really glad I have found this info. Nowadays bloggers publish just about gossip and net stuff and this is really irritating. A good blog with interesting content, that's what I need. Thank you for making this site, and I'll be visiting again. Do you do newsletters? I Cant find it.
