Today my husband turns 40.  He insisted that there be no parties, or major celebrations… that he just wanted to turn 40 quietly.  While I am respecting his decision, I would like to take today to celebrate him.  I could not ask for a better husband or father for my girls.   I have never seen a father who shares the closeness with his daughters that he does.  I am so grateful for the bond that they share.  So today, Michael Salmon, we celebrate you and your 14,605 days of life. (Including leap years of course!)
