“I spend a lot of time these days focusing on all the different versions of myself, getting to know and better understand my own complexities. But if I had to be just one thing, just one singular person, if I had to choose, it would be this- someone who is constantly in the middle of a life which they do not deserve.”
– Jack Raymond
Last night was my night to get up and go back downstairs to work after Kevin and I did bedtime stories and prayers with Steevenson, but when I started to get up off the mattress to leave, he grabbed my arm and said, “No, Mama, I want you to stay”.
“You do?”, I asked.
“Yes”, for fifty days”, he replied. ⠀
It came out so quick- I knew exactly what he meant. He meant “always”. He meant “life is better together…even if we’re going to asleep”. ❤️
What a sweet and simple reminder of the meaning of my existence…and the one consuming desire of the heart of God: to love and let myself be Loved in this life that is a Gift. 🙂
