Happy birthday, my dear.
The milestone of 22 candles on your cake signifies so much more than mere numbers. It represents yet another year filled with cherished memories, inside jokes that make our hearts swell, contagious laughter that fills our lives, and the privilege of calling you my beloved.
In anticipation of this special day, I pondered endlessly on how to make it truly extraordinary. I dedicated countless hours to find the perfect gift for a man who has given me everything. Yet, nothing compared to the simplicity of wishing you a day of joy, not only today but every day. Your happiness intertwines with mine in a bond that is beautifully uncomplicated.
You have taught me invaluable lessons, not only about life and relationships but also about the depths of my own being. Through you, I discovered the capacity to open myself up fully, a feat I never thought possible. Prior to our journey together, I prided myself on independence, believing I needed no one in my life. Even in our relationship, I have spoken those very words to you. I reveled in solitary nights, where Netflix and I were the best of friends. My focus revolved around saving money, conquering college, and reveling in the company of friends. The opinions of boys held no sway over me, for most were unworthy of my time. The notion of a love story akin to “The Notebook” was enticing, but I never truly allowed it to linger in my thoughts.
And then, you entered my world, and everything transformed. You compelled me to mature as an individual, urging me to embrace every perspective. I uncovered the fact that I truly did need someone in my life, someone as extraordinary as you. You taught me the power of vulnerability, a concept foreign to a girl who shielded her emotions, thoughts, and dreams from the world. The profound emotional change you instilled in me is indescribable; words fail to capture the depth of my gratitude. Yet, it was not your intention to do so. In the beginning, both of us were apprehensive, consumed by the fear of causing harm to one another. We attempted to evade the gravity of our connection, but destiny had other plans. We were irresistibly drawn to each other, our souls intertwined. Our relationship is far from flawless; we stumble, learn, and advance as individuals while healing from past mistakes. We embark on a journey of trusting one another while fortifying the foundation of our love.
Overall, I consider myself extraordinarily fortunate to have found you in this chaotic world. Few are blessed with such serendipitous encounters. With your guidance, I have blossomed into the person I am today. While I possessed confidence, ambition, and blessings in abundance, you have taught me to gaze upon myself with unconditional love. My goals, once set in stone, have now acquired an irrefutable purpose and tenacity, all because of you. My life, already touched by fortune, now has a partner with whom to share those blessings and forge our own path.
Thank you for nurturing my growth, for enabling me to appreciate the beauty in life, and, above all, for being the remarkable person you are.
Happy birthday, my love. Here’s to the countless years of joy we shall celebrate together.
