Gideon’s Challenge

IMG_6139Words of Affirmation

You coax
You cajole
and you chip at those walls.
You nurture
and love
and each day
you encourage.
You tell me you are proud
of the man
I have become,
but it is thanks to you
I have become
the man that I am.

Your influence touches every aspect of my life.  That is what twelve years can do.  Every piece of my life has a bit of you in it… and every piece of me does too.  You have taught about emotions and about vulnerability, about strength  and so much more.  Without you?  There very simply would be no me… not the me you see today.  Because it is with you that I have grown.  Not alone. Together.

  1. Your pictures, your poems, your words…it’s all so very beautiful, my love.

    And I -am- proud, so proud of the man you’ve become. You’ve overcome so many obstacles, you’ve fought through so many hardships and yet you always remain steady where it counts. You are GOOD, a beautiful shining star…right where it counts most. You are kind and considerate, hard working and creative, you are intelligent and resourceful. You are…amazing, my love. You are simply amazing.

    All of these thing makes me fall just a little bit deeper in love with you, every single day. I’m so lucky that you are mine.
