Thinking of him and I catch a glimpse of myself on my phone screen. Startled, I study my face. A simple slight smile but my eyes were literally twinkling. ‘Why do I look so in love?’ I asked myself. Because I loved him. I had to, there was no denying, it showed all over my face.

This journey has been more simple than hard if I’m being honest with myself. This man has made it easy to love him. It was me who was making it hard.

Acceptance is truly a wonderful feeling.
