Where do I even begin?
I weep so easily thinking about our journey.
You tell me I am so strong, and yet it is you who has been my strength, my saviour, my pillar of hope and refuge during all our turbulent times.
Every time I cried, every time I said I couldn’t do it again.
Every time we had a talk, and I came to you in tatters and utter confusion.
Every time I said I couldn’t handle the outside world…
You were there for me, holding my hand and listening.
Letting me know you would always be there.
Your support and love is the greatest gift I could have ever received.
And you didn’t give me blind promises, tell me all would be ok.
You didn’t pretend like you knew the answers.
You just told me, I was enough.
We were enough.
So, as we approach this much-anticipated moment of all our wildest and craziest dreams coming true, I want to thank you.
Thank you for it all.
I need your strength just a little more. Give me one more burst…
And then some more, and more, for the rest of our lives. Because that is life.
Please know I will always be there for you too.
Unwavering, loving, “I’ve got your back.”
And I know you’ve got mine.
You are a real-life knight in shining armour. And yes, fairy tales do come true.
I love you.
