I have always wondered how we got here: from an “I know you, you know me but we don’t talk relationship” to “I am gratetul to have you”. I always wondered if our paths were really meant to cross in the past for the purpose of meeting each other. Who would have thought that we’d end up with each other right? I’m glad we did.

| Philippians 1:9 “I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding.” |

Forgive me for those times that I refused to give you affection everytime you asked. I am not used to it but I am trying. Love, please be patient with me. I know that there are a lot of things that we’ll discover about each other – the good and the bad. I’ll accept every inch of that and I hope you would too. No words could describe how blessed I am to have you.

While you are busy reading this article, try mo rin makinig sa episode namin:

| Song of Solomon 3:4 “I have found the one whom my soul loves.” |

Wanna know the reason why I never gave up on you? Well, right from the start I saw potential in you. They might look at you as an arrogant person (to be honest, this is my first impression about you) but I saw something beyond that by the time I got to know you. I might not have liked you at first but I really saw something in you. I might not be able to explain what it is but believe me, I always knew you were better than what people thought you were.They didn’t know your stories, that’s why they judged you easily.

I always wanted to tell you that I am proud of you. I am proud of how you managed all of your responsibilities. I am proud of how you’ve tried to help everyone around you. I am proud of what you have achieved. I am proud that you are doing your best to achieve more. And if ever you fail, I want you to know that I am proud of you for trying. I am proud that you didn’t give up. And I am proud of you for simply being yourself.

| Philippians 1:7 “It is right for me to feel this way about you. I hold you in my heart, for we have shared together God’s blessings.” |

Love, let’s make this relationship work. I know it will for He’s the center of it. Maybe I never had the chance to tell you this but there are a lot of times that I am close enough to giving up. But I know that I love you and I just can’t do it. Everytime my heart is heavy and my mind’s a whirlpool of thoughts, I pray to God for an answer; whether to stop and walk away just like that or give you a chance to realize everything. The funny thing is that everytime I would do that, he’d tell me, “wait a little more, this one’s for you” in different ways possible. One time I remembered praying for that because my anxiety is really too high I can’t stop myself from thinking if it’s really worth it to wait. And right after I prayed, you messaged me, asked me how was I feeling. That moment I knew that it was worth it, you were worth the wait. Love, you are my safe haven. Everytime I feel sad, exhausted or anxious, I want you to be there for me. You are really there during those times and I am truly grateful for that.

| Philippians 1:3 “I thank my God everytime I remember you.” |

Love, thank you for being patient with me everyday. We both know that I have that attitude and trust issues but you always know how to handle it. You have the ability to calm every nerve in me. Thank you for motivating me. Thank you for staying by my side even though I am the worst girl you’ll ever meet. Let’s continue to build together and encourage each other to do better. Someday, we’ll reach our dreams without even realizing that we’re already there. I thank God for giving me you.

Send me the best BW Tampal!
