Lately I have been remembering things about us when we were just starting out. It was crush at first sight, no doubt, even though we were debating who was first to to feel it. Deep in my heart I knew you will become a part of my life and the biggest part at that.
We got together though I wasn’t sure about saying yes to you. You weren’t really my ideal man. You are far from what I’ve imagined.
But slowly, you took my heart and let me know how far your persistance, consistency, and hardwork to let me feel I deserve to be taken care of, to be loved.
We’ve been through a lot. We had our fights, big and small. I disappointed you, you failed me. Countless of times, we weren’t on the same page. I have a hard time letting you know how I feel and think.
But your patience to understand and the forgiveness I’m always willing to give prevail against all the things that might have broken us up if we weren’t mature enough to choose to love each other still.
We committed our lives to build a future together. We’ve traveled a number of times, and each trip we learn to know and love each other more.
We dream together, we outpour our innermost feelings and desires to one another. We let ourselves be vulnerable and strip our souls for us to see.
I love how we choose to choose each other still. How we refuse to say the words “Let’s end this”. I love how we build back the broken pieces. I love how we struggle to keep moving forward.
You are far from being the perfect partner, and so am I. Your shortcomings frustrates me. Your idea of deciding on what I should or should not know so that I won’t get hurt is one of the things I will never understand. But know that I will always be open and I hope you will eventually to trust me not to think the worst of you. I want you to know that I have seen your heart and I know you are capable of loving deeply.
I want to thank you for sticking with me throughout the years. You may have your slips that I do and do not know of. I accept you, damaged and all. I am grateful for having you in my life. I am thankful for letting me feel how to be valued.
I am thankful for choosing me for all these years.
And I am grateful for letting me be a part to create another wonderful life—our child.
You may love differently, but I know the love that you will pour in this life we chose to raise will be extraordinary.
It’s not easy nowadays, but I thank God for having you in this time. I know we’re in good hands. I can’t wait to know how everything will be once we become three.
The happiest birthday to you my love! You will be a daddy on your next one. Isn’t that exciting?
Cheers to more years with you and our little miracle. I love you forever.
Always committing to love you,
Your malago, your prinsesa, your partner for life
