My rock

An unexpected by-product of undertaking postgraduate study was to meet my soul mate.

Lynsey is not only my love, he is my rock. He is always there. He does everything he can to help me succeed. He encourages me to dream … to be more … to shine … to push the boundaries and follow my passions. He holds me up when I feel like I can’t go on. He makes me feel like together we can achieve anything we want.

As we were driving home this evening I looked over at him and the words from a poem I read to him on our wedding day came to my mind …

How do I love thee?
Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861)

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, — I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! — and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

How do I love thee?

More and more every day.

Thank you for being my rock and for letting me flow alongside you and around you without ever holding me back in any way.


18. Every day express love. Some people need to hear it. Most people need to see it. Don’t take it for granted.
20. Every day say thank you.
21. Every day seek the support of others. You are not alone.
