Post-Blogging: Closure

Alex and I met 17 years ago on a trip to a beach called Ostional. Over the years, we have been there with my parents, my sister and her husband, and the girls.

We decided that a final trip there would provide a sort of closure, so we went this weekend. It was a good thing to have done.

We laughed and we cried. We spent every single minute together, doing things both naughty and nice. We fought and we made up. And on Sunday afternoon, we lay on the bed in the cheapest cabinas in town, listened to the rain pouring down on the tin roof, and took the rings from each others' fingers.

You and Alex and the girls are in my thoughts and prayers.

I know this is a hard time for all of you.

I send many good and positive thoughts to your island home!

This was very touching. I have a good sense for what you are going through and I wish you the best for all of you.

That's hard for me to read girl.

Be happy.

Please, be happy.

I'm hard pressed to admit that I cried so hard when I read this, it's taken me nearly a week to compose myself enough to respond.

Good luck with everything, and keep the good stuff in your heart. It wasn't for nothing, and will serve you both well if you hold it to the light.

God bless and keep you all.
