not sure why but last night i felt a lightness in my heart.
maybe it was her intentional and loving smile that put me at ease.
it felt as if fear packed its bags and exited the back door, leaving only a memory of what was once there.
i shared with her my ramblings with N, words he had captured in writing the night before. i spoke freely of her, his ears and heart open to taking her in as i described her spirit and all that she is.
she smiled in shyness, i smiled in joy.
i proceeded to speak from my heart, nervousness came in a little bit, i wasn’t stopping this time. keep going, keep sharing.
when i finished i took a deep breathe and sat in silence for only a moment before she agreed with a smile and thanked me for not stopping. whew, deep breathe again. huge weight off my back, wow, i can’t believe how far we all have come.
*some moments just have to be documented. and this is definitely one of those moments.
