I remember the first birthday I knew you.
We had only just begun our journey, I was captivated by you and I called on the phone just to ask, “When is your birthday?”
It was such a fun moment when you said, “Tomorrow”.
You were turning 19. And I was there, just a little, just a dot of something on your heart, in your life.
Today you are 47 and all your birthdays from that day have been together, ours. The little dot of me on your heart has grown into two hearts becoming one; all of me in you, and all of you in me.
You call it “us-ness”.
For better, for worse, in sickness and in health, for richer, for poorer; we experience it all.
This is balance, this is healthy, this is important.
Hand in hand.
