Three years of: love, growth, strength, and perspective. We are blessed to have had these days together, to be in one another’s life, and to know each other deeply while, at the same time, uncovering just a little bit more of each other every day.
Driving home, I realized that the past three years haven’t been that hard. The hard parts are worth it because we are working to achieve something great: a relationship made of substance. And there is a lot of fun to be had along the way, too. Simply put, the song “Wild Heart” by Bleachers sums it up perfectly:
Well, everything has changed
And now it’s only you that matters
I will find any way to your wild heart
Whether I feel happy, sad, angry, or joyful, my son is gasoline to my fire. His mere existence ignites the spirit within me. The relationship between mother and young child is a beast: neither of us know where the day will lead us, but we always know that we will move through it, together.
Thank you for three magical years of true love.
