Joking, laughing. Remembering when we first met. Inside jokes only we are silly enough to get.
Later, gentle kisses on my back. Watching moonlight dance through the blinds, planning our weekend, talking until we got sleepy. Holding hands. Just happy.
A few days ago, Gary told me, “If she never would have left, I never would have found you.”
For this, for freeing him to find real love, I am grateful. For everything that came together to cross our paths, I am grateful. For our faith in love and honesty and loyalty…I am grateful.
