New Adventures Start With a Look Back

As I embark on this new adventure, I believe it should begin with a look back at where it began.  Don't worry, this won't be about the day I was born or to the beginning of time, but it will be more serious than I usually post.  Just to where my adventure, my life began with my dear husband.  I find that new, great love can often inspire us to be better.  To be more.  I am truly blessed that he makes me want to be the best person, the best partner that I can be.  He inspires me most every day.  He is supportive and has even told me that he loves my 'tummy.'  If that isn't love, I don't know what is.  He stands by me and allows me to be myself- thick or thin (me, that is).

When we first started dating, we had been friends for over a year and I had been in love with him for most of that time.  Sad, but true.  His charm and charisma still sometimes stop me in my tracks.  His bravery in the face of all that we have been through is staggering.  He is brilliant, beautiful, bold and maddening at the same time.

Once upon a time, I used to write poetry.  I rarely share it because it is often too personal, too raw.  But today, inexplicably, I find myself yet again inspired.  I want you to know what I saw in him, in myself more than 10 years ago.  Things I still see today and that's how I know that my adventure is still in its infancy.  There is so much more to come.

Those who know me, know I have a favorite phrase.  It is only 2 words, but they sum up life without fuss.  "Love is..."  And then you get to fill in the blank.  It is a reminder to me that love is in the little, every day minutia.  And here I will share a bit about what I believe about love.

Without further ado:

Love is Poetry.

Love is chaotic, yet 

Love is palpable, yet

Love is pure, yet

Love is wholesome, yet

Love is gentle, yet

Love is loneliness, yet
I am not alone.

Love is beyond my grasp, yet
I hold it in my heart.
