B just forwarded me an email from his mom regarding Christmas. It was lengthy and complicated, and you could just tell that she hated sending it. She knows the holidays are stressful for her married kids who have two families to appease. She is rather sensitive to most everything, so her email had a friendly, “I’m sorry for doing this to you” tone. (We would never get an email like that from my parents. HA!)
When talking about activities for Christmas Day, she said, “Understand B that you, Courtney and the boys will be spending Christmas with Courtney’s family.” You, Courtney, and the boys. The boys. THE BOYS. Reading that made me smile… and it made me tear up instantly. That one little sentence made me think about the fact that my dream – our dream – came true.
We have the boys.
We have OUR BOYS.
Not just one, but two!
Sometimes, the pleasant reality of my life hits me when I least expect it. Sometimes, someone else’s words make me reflect on the life I’m living, and the people in it. Sometimes, I pause for a moment and cry a happy tear or two.
