Today I’ll let my wife do all the talking as I’m rather speechless after reading this, overwhelmed by her thoughtfulness. ch: Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window) Related Categories: the family Tags: birthdaysJenniferjoymemoriesmile markersspousetributewifeyears 10 Comments Megan J. · 25 Apr ’12 at 8:30 am I started crying when I read that post. I commented over there, but I might as well on here too. Happy Birthday, Christopher! One of the most caring, loving, giving men I know. I’m so glad you found Jenny, and your clan is up here in Northern New York. I love you guys so much, and I hope you are here for a very long time, though I know, no matter what, you will follow God’s plan for you. So blessed by your presence, you’ve had such an impact on my life. I hope you truly enjoy today (and get spoiled a little bit too!). God Bless you CH. Christopher Hopper · 25 Apr ’12 at 12:15 pm You’re such a sweet blessing to us both, Megan. Thank you for you kind, kind words… Taisia · 25 Apr ’12 at 4:42 pm Happy birthday CH! 🙂 Christopher Hopper · 25 Apr ’12 at 11:20 pm Thank you so much! Gabe · 25 Apr ’12 at 8:43 pm Happy birthday, Sir Hopper! Christopher Hopper · 25 Apr ’12 at 11:20 pm Well thank you good sir! Sarah · 25 Apr ’12 at 8:57 pm Happy birthday, Sir Hopper! Hope you had a wonderful day! Thanks for all you do! Christopher Hopper · 25 Apr ’12 at 11:21 pm It’s an honor – so appreciate you kind words. The day was fun for sure. Wayne Thomas Batson · 26 Apr ’12 at 12:05 pm Happy Birthday, my friend. I know God uses the humble things of this world to do great things, but WOW. He has shined through you on a level few can imagine, but we’d all do well to aspire to. And not just the Music and the Books, but in all those hundreds and thousands of tender moments where you speak life into the lives of friends and strangers alike. Y’know the movie It’s a Wonderful Life, where Jimmy Stewart discovers what would have happened if he hadn’t ever been born? If you had never been…if you hadn’t said “Yes!” to Jesus ten thousand times, well…I don’t even want to imagine what that world might look like. I don’t even want to think about my life without you as a friend. Happy Birthday again, dude. Now go shine your hairless head! Enough of this emotional stuff. Christopher Hopper · 26 Apr ’12 at 12:23 pm Wayne. Thank you for this. Just thanks. Wow. ch: Comments are closed.
