Today is Curtis’ 21st birthday!
On Tuesday, Jessica and I went for a long hike to the top of a nearby mountain. We had a good time. She’s so delightful to spend time with and has such a bright future ahead of her.
Last night, or rather all of yesterday, Abigail…well she…she has become a very dear friend. We continue to grow closer. Last night Jeni and she and I prayed again together. Abigail rested her head on my knee and ran her thumb up and down my fingers as she held my hand.
She has me.
I wonder if she knows it.
Four years ago, I was questioning love. Veronica was on my mind. And in reality, I had no idea.
Veronica, Ryan, Christi, Jenna, Tenielle, Jeni, Emily, Syndi, Laura, Abigail…
These are the girls who have taught me the most.
Not only have I touched her face, but she tells me that I have touched her heart. She is not another Ryan or Christi, she is simply my Abigail. This list will continue to grow and no name will ever disappear. I want our goodbye to be painful. I want this to hurt. I need this to hurt.
I need to share my heart.
