MAY 16th- what a day!

33 years ago today Tony Brooks entered the world. 7 years ago today we went on our first date. We were married 7 months and 2 days later.

I look forward to May 16th every year. It marks the start of the best season of my life. Falling in love with him was so great...waking up with a smile on my face before I even could remember why...applying at the same place to work because we really thought the only way life could get better was if we worked together...realizing the Lord's best doesn't require alot of debating, it is easy to recognize.

Being married has brought even more smiles, there is no one I laugh harder with than Tony...no one I would rather talk with, pray with, be with...He is it for me! I praise the Lord that 7 years ago the best part of my life began!

I celebrate this day each year with my whole heart. I am so thankful he was born! Happy Birthday Tony!

Happy Birthday Tony!
This morning in school, as soon as Tori and I realized it was May 16, we started talking about Uncle Tony! We are so thankful for your life...when we think of you, we immediately think of good times, laughter, and what a blessing you are to Becky, Payton, and Benjamin! God is good! We love you!
From all of us, we pray that this year is one of even more joy and growth in your family and in your walk with God.
