I’m looking at all of this snow….all of this white and I am taking a deep breath and wiping the slate clean.
It’s been years of begging, tiptoeing, hoping, worrying and I can’t help someone that doesn’t want help. I can love and I’ll love from a distance.
I choose this family. My family. The one I helped form. The family with Ben – who can’t hear me unless I say cookie or lego. The family with Annie – who can not sit still. Ever. I choose Scott who has been working longer than long hours – who never strays from his vision and integrity. A family full of quirks, laughter, independence, wonder, dreams, faults, and love….always love.
Shakily, but sure of what I know to be true, I am wiping the slate clean.
