happy birthday to my wife

A sincere Happy Birthday – today – to my wife, Minhee, on her 38th birthday.  I know that folks don’t like their ages to be published but in her case, it’s ok since she’s aged so well…

Both my wife and I constantly hear how young we both look.  We still occasionally get carded when we order some wine or beer.  There are some folks that get shocked when they see us walking around with our three children.  And so, while folks sort of smile at us because we look so young right now, let me be honest with y’all.  We will be laughing at all our non-Asian friends when we all turn 60 around the same time in the future.  You will look your age at 60 but we’ll be looking 40.  And yes, we will rub it in.  :)

The first picture is Minhee during college and the second was taken last month.  Thank you, Minhee, for your deep devotion, friendship and partnership.  Happy Birthday.

And by the way, she says she wants the following items for her birthday.  She asked that you deliver it to me so I can deliver it to her.

  • 52 inch Plexiglass Portable Basketball Hoop
  • Makita PowerDrill Set
  • Canon Rebel XTi
  • Golf Clubs

    Wonderful blessings to you, dear Minhee! Do you remember the blueberry cheesecake with your nickname on it? That was how many years ago? It seems like yesterday…

Home, sweet home. 
#seattle 17.5 Year Anniversary!
We still got it. We look gooooood!

Blessed to be back in Princeton, NJ for couple days recently. We had our wedding ceremony in Korea but got "legally" married in the US at Miller Chapel in Princeton Seminary. So, it was only fitting to go back and have my kids take our 17.5 Anniversary  pics. Someday when our kids become adults and they feel like their parents wronged them or neglected them, and they feel like they need to get counseling... I'm going to show them this picture and say, "I HAVE PROOF. WE TOOK YOU TO NYC AND BOUGHT TICKETS TO WICKED ON BROADWAY!" RIP Robin Williams. 
Folks: Please go and - call or hug your loved ones. Tell them you love them. Remind them how you much appreciate them.

We need to (re)learn how to be more human. Don't avoid eye contact. Don't hide behind gadgets. Smile often - both to neighbors and strangers alike. Ask about peoples' stories. And listen.

And most importantly, remind yourself that YOU are loved. Not just merely by your loved ones but also by the ONE who created all that is good and beautiful. Dang. The bright lights of NYC. 
Having been a youth pastor in Flushing between 1992-1994, I really miss this place.

Empire State of Mind. Smitten my NYC. There's no place like this city in the world.
