Happy Birthday my love

My Dearest Brian~

I'm wishing you a very happy birthday today! I remembered this poem and thought I would send it to your way. I am sooo looking forward to spending tonight with you! I thank God for you everyday. You mean the world to me, and I love you deeply.

Your adoring wife~


How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

I love thee to the depth and breadth and height

My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight

For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.

I love thee to the level of everyday's

Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.

I love the freely as men strive for Right;

I love thee purely as they turn from Praise.

I love thee with the passion put to use

In my old grief's and with my childhood's faith.

I loved thee with a love I seemed to lose.

With my lost saints, I love thee with the breadth,

Smiles, tears, of all my life! and if God choose,

I shall but love thee better after death.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning
