You are an old fashioned guy I think the word is gallant you have a deep kindness in you you have a patience that doesnt seem to exist in this world. You have been incredibly patient with me. You stayed When lesser men would have guarded their wounded pride you tended to my wounds instead. When I pushed you away, you knew I didnt mean it because you see me. You see my soul. You know that the person the face that I show to the world isnt the person inside. You take care of that inside person. You nurture her and you soothe her doubts and kiss away her fears. You heal her and tonight I want to thank you for that. I want to promise that if you should ever need it, I will do the same for you because I love you, and I will treasure you for the rest of my days. Ben talks next I never felt more grateful to God and filled with his grace than I do at this moment. You talked about my healing powers, but never underestimate yours. You breathed life into me.

And I promise that you have my whole heart. Now, and always Ben actually has his hand on his heart as he speaks.
