So I found a bunch of stuff I had written back in high school and my early college years. It has been YEARS since I've written anything. Way back when, I hit writer's block. And then I had kids, so it was pretty impossible to even get my thoughts organized enough to put them down on paper. So anyway, here's something I wrote my senior year of high school, and it also happens to be one of my favorites.

Goodbye for now.
The whisper echoed as their fingers slowly broke contact.
The stares lingered
Their footsteps became slow and halted.
Her lips moved slightly as she backed away.
Her eyes could not leave the depths of his
Her skin still burned where his had touched hers so gently.
Her heart pounded in such anticipation.
He loved the way her hair carelessly blew across her face.
He ached to reach up and softly brush it behind her ear.
He longed to pull her close, to experience her heart beating against his in such rapture.
He needed to feel her breath against his cheek one last time.
The strangers passed, casting a glance at each other
The look that was meant to last for only a second
Lasted for a moment.
It continued as they kept walking their separated ways.
Lightning must have struck.

I feel so blessed in my life right now. There are SO many things going wrong, and SO many things that I could dwell upon. But sometimes you just have to close your eyes and take a deep breath. That is what I have done lately, and it has been wonderful. If I can just ignore all the negative things for a few minutes, everything else comes back into perspective.

I am SO bless to have my family. Seth and the kids are the most important things in my life, and sometimes I forget how wonderful that one simple thing can be. No matter what I do or how I act, they love me. They can forgive me for being selfish and remind me why there is no need to focus on the things that bring me down. I am happy and as long as that stays first in my mind, nothing else can change that.

Things are falling into place, slowly but surely. Seth and I picked a song that screams out our relationship. I'm sure this may seem kinda generic to some, but "Bless the Broken Road" by Rascal Flatts seems like it is written about us. We have been through so much together; we've been together, and we've been apart, but no matter what we have always been a team. He truly is my best friend and he always has faith in me. He believes in me and what I can do, even when I don't. He's always there to pick me up, even when he's part of the reason that I'm down. We have grown into adults together, and our relationship has only grown stronger because of it.

Anyway, I'm blessed and I'm thankful....and that's all that matters right now.
