Love swept away 8 months of my life.
April, and love brought me five daisies, planted, for each month it had been there, as new ones bloomed.
In May, challenges arose when love was faced with hate from outside our walls, and it stood beside me through thick and thin.
June, Love blossomed like a flower when we found a new home, together.
As the light reached it’s peak, July brought hope and a clarity.
August had love give me wings to fly, to feel free, finally.
September, Love wanted to expand our family and so we adopted Labrador, he is happy and so are we.
In October, Love made my dreams of him come true. One sunny day, one treasure hunt, one question. A sparkling ring now sits on my finger, love got stronger and love will stand.
A year was celebrated in November, the closing of the first chapter, the celebration of a new family, visiting old memories with new haziness.
Now, in December, I realize how grateful I am for that man, Love, our home, and what has arisen from the hard times faced.
I am no longer tired, but ready to stand for love, for us, for our future!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,
