Why? How?

The following questions may pertain to someone in your life. It might be God, your spouse, a friend, or your child or children.  Or they may pertain to any or all of the above.  If one of the questions doesn’t fit, then ignore it or apply it to someone else.  But I think all of these will apply to at least one person in your life.
Why?
Why do you love me?
Why did you pick me when you had so many other choices, most of them far better than me as far as I can tell?
Why are you so patient with me?
Why do you forgive me over and over and over?
Why do I have so much to learn from you and why are you so willing to teach me?
Why are you so kind to me?
Why do you see the best in me?
Why do you know how to bring out the best in me?
Why did you know how to change my perspective on life?
Why did you know how to change my life?
Why do you always stand by me even when I fail, intentionally or unintentionally?
Why do you keep encouraging me to never give up, no matter what?
Why are you always there for me at just the right time?
Why didn’t you come into my life sooner?
How?
How can I love you more?
How can I become the person you see me to be?
How can I possibly repay you for all you’ve done for me?
How can I use my time better to serve you and serve the world?
How can I keep you always by my side?
How did you know that my life needed to change?
How did you know that only you could change it?
How can I spend my life with you and on you?
How can I love you more?  (Yes, I know I’ve asked that question already, but I really want to know.)
How can I Get Started and Keep Going unless you are with me?
The answer to the last question:  I can’t.
Why?
Why do I love you?

I have two answers to that one:  because you loved me and because I was born to love you.
