My favourite word. My favourite emotion. My favourite delight.

So many different forms of love to relish in and to offer. And although tomorrow is earmarked for lovers across the world, I am going to use it to celebrate something a little different. I am going to use it to celebrate what I love about Gabriel.
And what do I love about Gabriel?
I love his smile. I love how, when he smiles, his whole being smiles. It is like watching a glorious sunrise.
I love how, when he is sad and the tears flow, he can find solace in my arms.
I love how he will, sneakily, plop a small car into the fish tank and wait for me to spot it. And when I do, and I say his name in a soft, low, monotone, he runs away, giggling.
And, oh, how I love his giggle! I swear, it must be the highest vibration of love that the Big Man above bestowed upon him.
I love how he walks past me and will, casually, run his hand along my arm, leaving me drowning in a pool of bliss.
I love how brave he is in a world that assaults his senses.
I love how he never gives up.
I love his mischievousness.
I love his stubbornness.
I love how he teaches me. Every day and in every way.
I love how he brings out the warrior in me.
I love how he has taught me how to play again.
I love how he will stand and lock his eyes with mine, making me feel beautifully bare.
I love how he effects people. How his mere presence in a room, has a profound, lingering effect on them.
I love how he shows me the world from a completely different perspective.
I love how unconditionally, intensely and purely he loves me.
I love how he has taught me what real, unwavering love is.
And finally, to end off, I will tell you what I tell Gabriel every night, as he is drifting off into a world, often kinder than ours:
"I love you, Gabriel. More than the sun, and the moon and all the stars in the sky. Always. And forever."
