Last night, my WH and i were laying in bed snuggling. Our 3 week old granddaughter was sleeping peacefully on WH chest.

WH started crying and said "Thank You" and i said "for what" He said "for agreeing to commit to reconciling....because if you hadn't i wouldn't be here for moments like these"

I'm going to keep that one in my back pocket for those days when i am struggling and need hope to hold onto.

For anyone out there struggling....find a moment, write it down, carry it with you, keep it handy, so you can remind yourself, on the rough days, there is hope. Day by day. Hugs to all of you!

Take up your space (and do it well).

Very powerful moments when you see that true remorse. Hold it close. Love the idea of trying to remember to hold onto the good for the bad moments. Inspiring.
