Happy Birthday Hijack!

Hi everybody, this is Chuck... I'm hijacking the Peapod to wish Cris a happy birthday! Please join me in sharing your birthday wishes to help her have a special day! -- I arranged for a friend to deliver flowers to the front doorstep this morning (thanks Perry!) -- I was on the phone with Cris when he snuck them to the door... then he lept over the flower bed and ran through the trees. She said, "Why is there someone running through our woods? Is that Perry?" -- Fortunately, she liked the flowers. =)

Well, hon, I don't have any jewelry for you this year... but I did take some time yesterday to write this for you... I hope it reminds you of a time when I wrote you things like this more often!

>>In Ribbon and Bows<<

On this special day
I wanted to say
that you're on my mind
and you're in my prayers
and though I'm not there with you
I needed to share with you
wherever you go
I need you to know that
I give you my heart
I give you my life
I'm blessed as a man 
to have you as my wife
so I offer my faithfulness
I'll give you my all
I'll give you assurance
I'll be your safe place to fall
and though I am far away
my heart's there with you today
and I need you to know
so I'm wrapping my soul
in ribbon and bows
and though it's not new
I give it to you

Happy birthday Cris! I love you!!!!!

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday- Dear Cris, Happy Birthday to you! You probably liked that song more than you would have appreciated hearing me sing it to you. Hope your day is full of joy. I'm sending you a hug! Tell Chuck way to go on that beautiful birthday poem, too. Love, Stacia

Happy Birthday!!!

What a sweet gesture on your husband's part. Too bad he can't be with you, but sounds like he's doing an awfully good job of making up for it!

Randi Sue said...

Happy Birthday to you! You are blessed with a wonderful husband!

Danette said...

Wow, Happy Birthday chhicky. hope you have a great day and many more to come. But beware, with more birthdays, come more candles. Hey, that could be a good thing, they would then have to call the fire department. *Wiggles eyes at the thought of a fireman coming to extinguish 'her' candles*

Can I just say...this has turned out to be a GREAT birthday. I was thinking last week that it would be a bummer, being all by myself...but I have been so blessed today. Everything from flowers to e-cards to phone calls to blog hijacking...

I was wiping the tears away after reading the hijacking entry. What a thoughtful husband. Thanks so much for making this day so special. THANKS...from the bottom of my heart. All the birthday wishes from my blogging friends means so much. THANKS for making me feel so loved today.

Major Mom said...

Happy BDAY girl! Hope you have a wonderful day and do something special for yourself:)

Christy said...

Cris, can I say that you don't look a day over 3? Maybe it's the new glasses. They bring out your inner child :) Happy Birthday! Mark had a great talk with Chuck last night- here's to your family having some family time soon!

Susan said...

Happy Birthdat Cris. There is a little package coming in the mail soon...look for it near your garbage cans. ha ha I love you. Hope your day feels special even though Chuck is far away.

Susan said...

Trying a second time to say...
Happy (now late) Birthday Cris! - my young friend!

We prayed for the folks who are getting ready to buy your house. Just think how much they are going to enjoy it!

Julie said...

Happy Birthday Cris! What a great husband you have! I'm still sad that we've only had you here for such a short time. For you and your family though I'm praying the house will sell quick and you'll be together as you should be!

So sorry to have missed your special day due to my not blogging. I didn't even blog my own birthday, so I wasn't biased against yours! I absolutely LOVE the hi-jacking idea. Pretty neat. We wish we could have met your Chuck before he had to go off to another state for his new job! We tried, didn't we? : )
