There are countless things I am grateful for you, both things you do for me and our son, and things I don’t even know of or realize. For things that I can confidently speak of, your presence in my life is that of positivity and love which keeps me learning and growing to become better each time we encounter stumbling blocks. Even when we find ourselves in a duel, you allow that space for us to reconcile and become better for each other.
There are three remarkable things that I am most appreciative of you. You may already know these by my sprinkles of “thank yous” and kisses here and there, however, I express in words to wrap them up in a thoughtful little package. Here goes…
First is the yummy food you bring to the table
During the start of this year, you have expressed becoming better in what we eat. Preparing and cooking our own food do the trick perfectly. I appreciate the amount of effort you put into this: from sourcing the ingredients to dedicating blocks of your time to cooking. It is a feat being able to balance this and the many other things that you have lined up within your day. Thank you for a healthy lifestyle that you foster for us.
Second is your many pakulo
From card games to new places to visit, I appreciate you for preparing these activities that strengthen our bond as a couple and as a family. I love it when we do things together because I discover new things about you and at the very least, we get into moments that draw us closer. You inspire me to be better in making efforts with my own pakulo. In the horizon, I’m glad to be looking in the same direction as you towards our next adventures.
Third and the most recent, your will power
As they say, “save the best for last”. I wanted the third one to be — aside from being the most recent — the one with the biggest impact for you and our family.
Pushing out to new frontier
I admire you for exploring many areas of your life, towards self-improvement and towards finding business opportunities. You, trying out many things and deep-diving into what interest you set out an example for me and for Bryce, to go out of our comfort zones in order to grow as an individual. Whichever exploration you may be in or set out to do, know that I’m here to support you all the way.
I admire you for successfully reaching the end of your seven-day bone broth fasting. For one, I didn’t know how it tasted while you were in that challenging week. Most of all, despite being there with us in the lunch or dinner table (oh, the temptation!), you were steadfast while drinking your food (Bryce would say, “that’s not food!”).
No matter how many times you said, “Break the fast! Break the fast!” and me, “Hold the door! Hold the door!” you stood your ground (with legs shaking). Seeing you accomplishing your mission while experiencing hunger and loss of strength, enlivens me with the thought that anything is possible. Not because of the idea of “if you can do it, so can I” but more of “I thought only bible characters were able to do it.” You’re my hero, is what I’m saying. The badge that you have on your chest means that you’ve single-handedly restarted not just your diet, but ours also. I appreciate you taking us in this journey of a well-balanced diet.
There are many other things about you that I appreciate and am grateful for. Your mere presence in my life, is something that just feels right and I always want to make right. As Sam Smith sang, “You’re the one designed for me.” So, let’s cheers to more loving moments, Koreanovelas, Loleas, and keto-friendly desserts! 🥂😘💕
