Everybody Loves Abby, Especially Me (Brian’s First Guest Blog)

On a day when rising out of bed felt like an unbearable chore, when sadness creeps into the very fibers of my soul, I find these on the desk in my office:
Remind me to explain the “flowers in a liquor bottle” someday soon.
And a love note in my inbox with the postscript:


“Maybe this should be my first official guest blog post. You could jazz it up with fun pictures if you want. And title it Everybody Loves Abby, Especially Me.”

And so it has been done.

I love you.
It’s been too long since I sat down and put it into words.
I love you more than anyone can possibly comprehend.  In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever met a sane person who doesn’t love you.  Hence my family’s favoite phrase, “Everybody loves Abby.”  It’s said in my family all of the time without a drop of sarcasm in group of people that speaks sarcasm as our native tongue.
You’ve never met a stranger.  Anyone who’s ever gotten to know you can count on you for anything.  You have this way of welcoming people into your heart.  And I get to be the guy who lives in that heart.

You’re not just the kindest person anyone will ever meet, you’re also one of the strongest.  I would hate to be the person that stands in your way, and I always want you in my corner.

And you’ve done just that quite a bit as of late.  You’ve been supportive every step of the way when it comes to school.  And you propped me up during a fight that I couldn’t have survived without you.  You’re my rock, my soft place to land, my biggest cheerleader, my knight in shining armor, my best friend, and most of all my one true love.

Not a single day passes where I don’t wake up and think to myself that I am the luckiest man in the world.  We found an unshakable love that most people may never be lucky enough to experience.  We’ve had some fun.  We’ve shed some tears.  We’ve picked ourselves up, dusted ourselves off and kept on going.  We’ve had some great times, but I know that some of our best times are ahead of us.  For now we surround ourselves with that unshakable love and we enjoy ever second.

I love you to the moon and back with a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck to infinity and beyond oodles and oodles.

On the darkest day, you are my shining light. Thank you, Brian.
