Gratitude is the memory of the heart. ~Jean Baptiste Massieu
In the tradition that was set last year when I got a thank you card in place of a Valentine card (it was a couple of days after the 14th & Sion didn't realise valentine cards would all be taken off the shelves!) I thought it only right that it's my turn this year to say "thank you"
Thank you for being brave enough to ask me to move in with you a year ago. I will always remember our tiny bat cave as the place we made many happy memories.
Thank you for knowing the way to my heart is a bag of haribo sweets and a lottery scratch card...every time you go to the shops and get me a surprise you choose exactly what I want.
Thank you for letting me get a throw (even though it's actually a blanket) despite your dislike of them. It doesn't just keep me warm it comforts me and I know you understand that.
Thank you for talking to me when you are stressed with work, the fact that you value my opinion and advice empowers me.
Thank you for introducing me to your family and friends, their support this last year has strengthened me.
Thank you for not minding that I am most relaxed when I am in my pjs and slippers rather than sexy lingerie and stilettos...the knowledge that you find me attractive when I am at my most natural reassures me.
Thank you for noticing that for the last week I have needed to hold my little cuddly lion before I can fall asleep, you understand that this represents all that we've been through and gives me an object to focus my emotions on.
Thank you for showing me how wonderful a father you will be.
Thank you for trusting me enough to share your emotions. It's hard to comfort the person you love but it would be harder to know they are suffering alone.
Thank you most of all for making me laugh every day, sometimes with a joke, sometimes with a tickle, sometimes with a body function that will always be funny!
Thank you for making me a better person than I could ever be by myself.
Thank you for choosing me
