Mama Ida turned a turned a year older over the weekend and her husband did not hesitate to write a romantic note for her, as he eagerly awaits their anniversary in a few days.

The party leader’s message which was uploaded today morning on his blog reads,

To my darling wife Ida,

The past 42 years have been an incredible journey and as I await to celebrate our 42nd anniversary in a few days, I want to celebrate you today on your birthday as my wife, the mother of our children and a strong, inspirational leader to many around this world.

May the good Lord fill your day with joy, laughter and blessings. Here is to 42 more wonderful years together.
