…who makes you laugh. Actually, who will go out of their way to look stupid, even if it only causes a smirk out of you.
…who loves coffee. Because you may fall inlove across the table over it.
…who likes to talk. For hours upon hours upon hours. But not about boring things, but about things that make you come alive. You may not even know what’s inside you until you start talking.
…who wears glasses. (I may just be biased). You probably will be able to spot those frames from miles away in crowds of thousands if you needed to.
…who enjoys the little things, because isn't it the ‘little things’ that are actually the ‘big things’ after all?
…who loves good music. You may not agree on everything. But, as long as you can find one mutual favorite, you can go to as many of their shows as possible. (one may even be at the Sydney Opera House)
…who makes things fun. All things.
…who makes mundane things more fun. Errands may become one of the highlights of your week.
..who prays with you. Because, there will come hard times. For both of you.
…who writes. Who captures the unsaid and the unseen in the most beautiful possible way.
…who reads. They will always be hungry to grow. You’ll never stop having things to talk about.
…who understands the importance of lazy days and pjs. Netflix may become a good, trusted friend. They may rewatch a series (or two) just for you to watch it with them.
…who loves your weird quirks. Yes, I don’t like peanuts and heating leftovers. But, you may share a common hatred for tomatoes, mustard and cream cheese.
…who loves small adventures. There’s too much of the world that still needs to be seen. Take small steps everyday to discover.
…who loves big adventures. The kind that involve 23 hour plane rides.
…who simultaneously challenges and comforts. You will grow into a better person.
…who makes conflict worth the effort. Because on the other end it brings strength, clarity and refinement. Embrace it well and it will grow you together.
…who fights against ‘comfortability’. The numbing kind. Apathy is deadly.
…who does sweet things for you, for no reason other than love. Flowers every week for a year?
…who knows good relationships are built. They don’t just happen. They are the product of love, selflessness, time, effort, intentionality and fun.
…who holds your hand. All the time.
...who hates fluorescent lighting. Silly as it sounds, you will make houses, 'homes' where ever you go.
…who worships God. With their mouths and most importantly with their lives.
…who beyond anything, seeks first to love God. Because when you seek God first, everything else is added to you.
…who wants to build the Church because there is nothing more beautiful than when two stand united on that.
…who loves people. You will fall in love with how they love. You will want to model yourself after their compassion.
...who listens. To the voice of God. To your heart. To wisdom and counsel.
…who loves to document life. You may have tons of photos of everything. And hey! They make the most beautiful videos you have ever seen.
…who steps into the unknown with you no mater how scary it looks.
…who loves you and wants the best for you. That will anchor you. You will go into the world, boldly and confidently knowing that love is behind you.
…who makes it hard to stop writing lists.
…who lets you take goofy videos of them and put it in a ‘dropbox time capsule’ over time.
…because one year later you’ll be so glad you did.
I love you, Andrew Kovacsiss.
