I am really happy.
I have this stupid grin on my face. I am excited. I have reached a milestone. In the large scheme of things this is very early. Feels like a lifetime to me. Makes me wish I had embarked on this journey much earlier in life.
I feel warm even on cold nights.
I don’t have elaborate plans for the holidays. I have no plans at all. I will probably be studying and working hard. I will be in my room. I will be by myself, but I will not be alone. There is warmth and contentment. There is love and affection. There are prayers hopes and dreams.
I couldn’t have asked for more.
I recently told my husband, ” if you died, I will move on..but if you left me I will really struggle.” I left him very surprised one weekend morning. He promised me he was right there for me. I know there are no guarantees. There is a promise. For now, I am happy with that. I savor every moment I know he is with me. I am grateful for another year well spent.
