Helge, besides Jesus saving me from my sins, you are the best thing that has ever happened to me.
I love you – truly and absolutely. I love it that we can talk at all hours of the day and night. I love it when you make me giggle long after bedtime. I love your sense of humour and that you are able to make me laugh so much sometimes that my belly hurts. I love the way you love me. I love the fact that your physical strength never pulls rank on your tenderness. I love the spark I feel whenever I see an sms from you on my phone. I love that every single day since we’ve been together I still love so much. I love your smile. Your smile makes everything well with my soul. There is nothing about you I don’t love. Waking up next to you in the morning, not wanting to get up because I feel more at home there than anywhere in the world. Stretching the last few minutes with you (even when you’re still sleeping), is my idea of heaven. In the past few years I’ve fallen in love many times… Always with you.
You have given me so much. You’ve allowed me into your heart. You’ve given your life another chance for love and you are willing to take that chance with me. You’ve made your house my home. You always give more than I could ever return. You take care of me and my heart. You are the one teaching me about trust. You give me the freedom to be honest about my feelings. I am able to tell you everything, even my secrets, my fears, my failures, my jealousy and my doubts and you keep them as you would your own. You give me permission to share with you all my joys and my pain. You accept the child within my soul. You care for her, protect her and nurture her dreams and hopes. You let my star shine and you are always there to help me achieve my goals and dreams.
Now, on your birthday, I want you to know that you are not just loved, you are adored and treasured! I will keep you on a pedestal as long as you’ll let me. I look forward to next week, next month, next year, your next birthday and all the time in God’s Will for us, after that.
I love you. You are my everything. Thank you for being you. Thank you for making me part of your life. And thank you for loving me.
