I just hugged you and plucked an eyelash from your cheek. I placed it on the tip of my thumb and said, “make a wish.” Without hesitation, you replied, “It already came true… I have you.”My heard pounded with love, my eyes glazed like people do when we feel seen and validated, my heart pounded, and I pushed forward insisting on another wish. You agreed, taking a moment then gently blowing the little eyelash wish away.
You looked at it and then turned to me and said so sweetly and confidently, “You’ll like that one.”
How are you so incredible? Thank you every single day for you. I don’t know how you do it, but you do. You always know the right thing to say at the right time. You’re so full of love and interest and understanding. You say it just comes to you naturally, no big deal. You say you do things that make me feel special because you know it’ll make me happy and you make it seem flawless and effortless. I know it takes effort, I know presence is a practice and I know that we all have a million things we want to do and be and have in our own world. I’m so grateful for your love and I’ll take good care of you and nurture your love everyday. My life is even better because you’re in it with me.
I love you,
