Last night, I walked into our bedroom to see John sleeping peacefully, Thea curled up on his chest. In that moment, I was aware of the fullness of my heart. I thought back to a year ago, when I was on the verge of giving up hope, when I was having difficulty believing that we would be able to bring a child safely into the world.
And yet, here we are. Each day, these two people cause my heart to stretch to new limits and teach me about the boundless nature of love. They bring light and magic to each moment of my day. My heart, my spirit are filled with gratitude. The only place I want to be is exactly where I am.
The road to get here has been long, the journey trying.
I can't imagine doing it with anyone but him. I wouldn't want to.
Thank you, John, for sharing your life with me. Thank you for being you.
