The Special Boy

There is this boy who has recently been playing a rather huge role in my life. We see each other everyday, eat together at least once a day and never run out of things to say to each other. I had initially thought that there was much I could teach him about life -having a wealth of knowledge and all (not)- but then I quickly learned that I couldn't have been more wrong. The converse is, instead, the truth.

From the endless hours of engaging in computer games come moments of great maturity. From the childlike excitement over a new episode of anime to watch come godly conversations. From the seemingly timid disposition come surprising acts of courage. Out of the numerous things I admire about him, it is his quiet yet confident spirit that I most adore...and hope to emulate.

I am thankful for this boy whom I can call family and friend...and cousin brother. (Haw haw haw.) Boy, am I glad that he's here with me!

What a blessing to have such an apartmentmate who, really, is more than just an apartmentmate. Just like the special girl whom I had as an apartmentmate and dearly miss. God is good.

"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." -James 1:17
