Is that Don Sparks? Actor, Musician, and all-around wonderful guy?
And it’s his birthday today.
There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t utter a fervent thank you for his presence in my life. Not one. My life was happy before I met him, but it is so much happier and richer and loving since. Oh, it’s overused, I know, but he is my soul mate.
He’s kind, courageous, intelligent, wildly funny, good, compassionate, wise, and humble. He is always trying to be a better person. He reaches out to help those in need. He has an open and giving heart.
He’s a brilliant actor. He writes beautiful music with lyrics that will break your heart and make you laugh and touch a chord deep within you. He was a wonderful father to our beloved dogs. He cooks (lucky me). He has a sense of adventure and spontaneity that I so admire and that nicely balances my more cautious nature. He has made me a better person, that’s for sure.
I won’t talk about the day we met – that anniversary is coming up in a couple of weeks – but I will say that it was the game changer, the most important day of my life.
Don Sparks, you are simply a wonderful man, the best man I have ever known.
Happy Birthday, dear one.
And Happy Birthday to our nephew, Little Z! He’s five years old today!
We love that they share the same birthday. Uncle Don and Little Z.
I’ll be back tomorrow with Don’s reaction to the TSP.
