We gather, the six of us.
We've done this unintentionally, for years.
We lean in, lean on one other.
We support each other, fully.
We stand for Him, and He ignites the fire.
That fire brings us now,
My little guy invites me to be five everyday.
He shows me how to never worry about the big things.
He teaches me how to throw my head back and laugh at the little things.
He reminds me how good it feels to believe we are safe.
In the years of waiting, I dreamed of this.
When it would not happen, I prayed for it.
Though my kitchen sink then faced a solid wall,
I envisioned the day I would do dishes & look out the window in front of me
to see my own child running, playing outside in our yard.
I never imagined it would feel so good.
God is so good.
