Valentine's Day 2015
Once upon a time, there was just the two of us. We were young and didn't waste time deciding we were in it for the long haul.
We were typical.
We thought we were unique.
We were going to write important things, do important things, see important things.
We were going to go here and go there. Ordinary couldn't touch us.
Our favorite pronouns were "I" and "Me" and we used them liberally when we talked about our dreams.
And then along she came, and she changed us.
And along they came, and they changed us.
And then he arrived. And he changed us.
And a life well lived was slowly redefined, like water rushing relentlessly over a jagged stone until it is finally smooth.
"Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends."
