Late Sunday evening after dinner at the beau’s parents’ house, we took a walk downtown so that I could settle down and prepare myself for rest. There’s something about wandering the quiet city after a rain shower, with perfect Spring-time temperatures.
At one point as we were walking the streets, hand in hand, in silence, I glanced over and caught myself thinking, “how could I be so happy?” Just six months ago I would have never pictured this scene or imagined sharing this moment with someone else. The catch is that I feel so comfortable about it. I had to quickly look away to hide the tears welling up in my blue eyes because I didn’t want to have to explain myself. And thinking about it now, I don’t think I have to… I’m pretty sure he feels the same way.
Side note: thank you thank you thank you! to everyone who sent me well wishes last week for a speedy recovery. I’m back; walking to work, boxing, and slowly easing myself into longer runs. All that encouragement and support really feels good to read. I really do have a great set of friends and fans.
