In January 1956, Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley were busy making records. In the first week of that month, Sudan became independent of Britain. Two days later (January 3), Mel Gibson was born. Two weeks after Mel saw the light of day, my wife was born.
Yes – today is Pauline’s birthday: she is 60! Not that she looks it, and even if you could see a suspicion of a grey hair or a wrinkle, it would probably be down the challenge of being married to me for over half of her lifetime!
She is a lady of many roles. Some people know her as a colleague and a gifted administrator. Some know her as a wise counsellor, a trusted confidante, or a friend. She is a hostess, a cook, a (slightly reluctant) church events speaker, a team leader. She is a mother, a mother-in-law, a daughter, a sister and a sister-in-law. To me she is my wife and the person who knows me best and who loves me loyally.
In biblical terms, she is a “Proverbs 31” woman, whose children and husband rise up and call her blessed.
Happy Birthday to a wonderful lady!
