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 truth.
The truth is, I didn't know this was going to be my life. The truth is, if you asked the 20 something me, I would tell you this is the exact opposite of the life I had imagined. I dreamed of living in a city, owning a small apartment, dashing off to work, eating in remote places, living the single city girl life.
The truth is, he knew how much I wanted all of this. He brought out the truth in me and he told me that a life of single, isn't what I wanted and I needed to let go of my fears and find the truth.
The truth is, I knew I was going to marry him the day he played "Hey Girl" for me and told me it reminded him of us. He sang the words to me as if wishing I would let myself go and come with him.
The truth is, he was right. I have loved every moment of this life, every moment of him and them, even the awful times and there are awful times.
The truth is, it took me a few weeks to stop looking at you like a stranger Anna and fall madly in love with the little girl and little face we put on this earth. But, once I did, that love could crush all evil.
The truth is, I loved you Cole, the moment I knew you were with me and I will always love you that much.
The truth is, this is exactly what I wanted and he was right, I needed to let go and go with him.
