Gideon’s Challenge


Murmured compliments
loving encouragement
quiet praise
and intimate whispers.
You would think
over time
I would become
and yet every day
you find
something to say
that makes me flush
with pleasure.

Thank you for trying so hard every single day to remind me not just of how much you love me, but of how much you admire me, desire me, and root for me. I don’t always take compliments well… but even when I stumble over them you never stop making sure that I hear how you feel about me.  And each time it sinks in just a little more than before.

  1. I don’t have to try to do all those things, love, they just come naturally. It’s easy to find things that I love and admire about you. It’s easy to find ways to support and encourage you.

    I love you so very much, so much. And I love that I can still make you blush with pleasure in knowing that I’m proud of you.
