Sharing in Dave’s Milestone Birthday
See this guy here? It’s my hubby Dave or better know to me as my Stud Muffin. He’s been my rock for 16 years now and he’s one of the most honest men I’ve ever known. I always describe him as “never a dull moment”. You can ask our friends when we go out as a group. He’s never an attention-seeker but you can always see his wheels-a-spinning! You know he’s going to crack you up with something.
This man turns 70 today. This man is also fighting for his life as I write this. He is in his last days with us as the cancer has taken over. He has not eaten a meal for 11 days now and sips on water when taking his medication. He has been asking for orange juice the past few mornings and Pepsi but very little. As I write this, I have to tell you that his goal for the past month has been to make it to his 70th birthday. I started this post yesterday and have prescheduled it so I do hope he is here with me for his birthday today when you read this.
While he was sleeping yesterday afternoon, I sauntered over to my neglected stamp room. I haven’t felt like being in there for a few weeks now. This is the card that I created using the A Good Man stamp set because just simply, Dave is a good man. The image I used is him totally.
I can see him sitting outdoors in a chair just like this with the same type of fishing hat and taking a nap. He loves nature and we always had fun doing recreational activities. I colored Dave with Stampin’ Blends Markers and had to add the amazing sentiment because he is absolutely amazing. For those of you that have been following his story, he has been fighting renal cancer metastasized to bone cancer for almost three years now. It’s unheard of to fight this long with his type of cancer. God has blessed us with many miracles but now time is running out. Join me in wishing a very Happy 70th Birthday!
