I was sorting through some photos this morning. I’m looking for a picture of my front door so I can order a new lock.
I came across this image. I love it. I love my husband. I love his hat, his glasses, and that mustache… oh that mustache. I LOVE my wrinkles. I love that I can see from my old blue eyes. I appreciate them so much.
I remember being cold but taking the moment to grab this selfie of us. I remember feeling him snuggled up against me and feeling how much I love him.
My favorite part, the reflection of our hands. When I see it I’m reminded we couldn’t get the shot unless we did it together. When I look at our hands I’m reminded of how many times we did things apart and against each other. We were on our own teams.
Today, we are rarely on our own teams and when we are, we remind ourselves how much better we are as one team. My favorite part of us is how well we work in our life together. Together, together, together. My partner, my love, my friend, the best teammate I’ve ever had.
It’s important to step back and remember these things.
