Happy 70th Birthday Marcia Starr Ballestero

My Darling Marcia!

What joy you’ve brought into my life, Baby. You are the best thing that ever happened to me, besides the Holy Ghost! Your saying yes to me has been very expensive for you, and absolutely wonderful for me! Thank You! You are heaven’s gift to me!

I want to thank you for your love!

Thank you for giving me your heart!

Thank you for giving yourself to me!

Seventy years! It’s quite the journey! You had already walked seventeen of those before I caught up with you!

Once my eyes laid hold on you, my heart became committed to keep me close to your side for however long the journey!

I have been honored above all men to hold your hand every step of the way!

Your stride was a steady and peaceful pace! With sweet calmness and grace you’ve faced life and all its uncertainties!

You took my heart and treated it like gold, you gave me yours to have and to hold!

You laid down by death’s door five times to make our home complete.

Thank you for always trying to serve me first at meal times, even though you should have been the first. Thank You!

I am overwhelmed at the staggering sacrifices you have made in expressing your love to me. Thank You My Darling.

  • You gave of your time and energy, caring for your family.
  • You’re completely selfless.
  • You’ve constantly sacrificed so that our family could enjoy comforts of life.
  • You are supportive of our children’s dreams.
  • You are supportive of my dreams.
  • You’ve always been a perfect picture of modesty and grace.
  • You’ve been feminine and nurturing.
  • You’ve been tender and kind.
  • You’ve always been peaceable and sweet.
  • You’ve been Godly and righteous.
  • You’ve been honest and true.
  • You’ve been real and consistent.
  • You’ve been a wonderful helpmate and friend!
  • You’ve been a loving and affectionate wife!
  • You’ve been all that a lover could be.

I have learned over the years that your primary love language is Acts Of Service.

Your Love Language everyday says to me, “I Love You!!” I Thank You For That!

I feel very appreciative and undeserving of your love. You, my dear, make all my dreams come true. Thank You!

With All My Heart, I Love You!!
