Our love story started with its own dose of adventure. So how did I think things would be any different in the coming years? We were designed for this. We were groomed for this. We weren’t ready for this. But if we could just hide in plain sight a little longer…
I packed up my wigs and my body healed while he put my heart back together. We fell in love on complete accidental purpose. We married, we built a home, we grew together in plain sight.
Plagued with the possibility of never being able to have children, despite the odds, we found ourselves pregnant. The pregnancy was filled with a myriad of possible terrors. And as she grew inside me, she hid in plain sight…
She burst into life and she teaches us daily what heavy love truly is. And if only we could have hid in plain sight.
It is time to step into the light in hopes of embracing someone else who might find solace in our story. It’s a little funny, it’s a little sad, but it is wholly and fully ours.
This world could use a little more honesty about doing hard life full of adventure and gallons of grace. So here is to standing in broad daylight. To being unabashed, coming barefaced into the morning. To making our story tangible. To giving words to our pain and a legacy to our joy.
To standing out and living in plain sight.
Sometimes the best hiding place is the one that’s in plain sight
