Happy Birthday to Our Hero


A man of distinguished valor or enterprise in danger, or fortitude in suffering; a prominent or central personage in any remarkable action or event. A great or illustrious person.

A man distinguished by exceptional courage and nobility and strength.

A large sandwich made of a long crusty roll split lengthwise and filled with meats and cheese; different names are used in different sections of the US ( Cuban sandwich, grinder, hero sandwich, hoagie, poor boy, bomber, etc.)  Is this HILARIOUS OR WHAT!?!?

*Great heroes need great sorrows and burdens, or half their greatness goes unnoticed. It is all part of the fairy tale.”
Peter S. Beagle
Happy Birthday to Our Hero! You have captured our hearts,
nurtured them gently, and helped us overcome our fears!
You have provided, protected and pursued!
You have loved when we have been unlovable,
unpleasant and ungrateful.
You have taught us, lead us and esteemed us.
You have told us of our beauty, our value and
our worth.
You have sacrificed when it wasn't easy,
served when you didn't have to,
and stayed calm when we have been
dramatic and emotional.
You have lived before us a daily example of
genuine faith in Christ...and that has changed
us...All three of us.
You have played horsie until your back hurt,
but didn't mention it a bit.You have kept
your word and never made a promise
you couldn't keep! You have wiped
more tears than any man would care to. You have
listened to us wayy more than you have been
listened to, yet never complained.
You have broken the chains of a heritage left for
you- and for that we are forever grateful.
Oh, and we have to mention that you have
cooked meals that even Chef Ramsey
would approve of!
Woody- you remind us of Jesus,
Our Beautiful Savior. Who came not to
be served but to serve.
No one celebrates this day like we do!!
Happy Birthday to Our Hero.
WE love you deeply!
 Your girls: Nikki, Charis, and Addy Kate
