Every Friday we unite for five minutes to write on one word. Only five minutes, that's all we get, that's all we have. And then, right where we are, no edits or second-thoughts, we publish those words. This week, we write on begin.
Just last week, I wrote on finish.
So, let's go full circle,
let's write about how to begin.
I began my life with you.
I started down a journey that was new,
one you allowed me to believe in.
And in the beginning,
it was so new, so exciting, so easy and we fell into our groove.
Family was defined by you, and us, and our little family of three.
And then, as we began to add to us,
each time we started a new beginning,
a new chapter,
we add to our story.
We add to what it's all about.
We redefine who we are.
It is time for a new beginning for me, for us.
I don't know how the next chapter will read,
but I know that together, we will rearrange the pages and the words to make our ending fantastic.
Hand in hand, heart to heart.
You are my beginning, you will be my end.
You are support, you are comfort, you are a friend, a hand, toes touching when we sleep love.
We will never forget how we started, how easy it was.
We will never forget the middle, and how challenging these times are.
We will look forward to and be sad about the future, and how unknown it is,
how many different ways the story can end.
But, it all begins with us.
