I learned true friendship at your knee, I learned to seek out and celebrate the best in people from watching you. I know that love truly never fails as I see it shine in you triumphantly. You never give up on people even when they are at their worst. You graciously extend favor and you keep your heart tender. Courageously you stand up for what is right while at the same time you show compassion. You are my perfect human example of strength and beauty.
My whole life I have always wanted to be as beautiful as you, to look at me and see the parts of me that look like you.
My hope now is to have the same beauty filled character, decency, honesty, compassion, and faith, shine in me, that ly shines in you.
It is my honor to celebrate you. Oh and You have been teased!
