On the way home from a couple of errands today I drove through the intersection of our city at Fielder Rd. and Norwood Ln. You know the one, right? ; )
It’s in kind of an older part town with homes that have very wooded lots and I pretty much have it memorized. Not much has changed there in twelve and a half years. I know this because it is the same intersection that became like a gateway to and from Tim while we were dating.
This is the spot where I would get so excited as I turned right, knowing that in just a few short minutes I would get to see my love again. I would drive those last couple of miles full of anticipation and sheer joy as I drove closer and closer.
It is also the spot where I would have to sit and wait to turn left on my way back home and most of the time my heart would just sink, as I began to already miss him and wish we were still together.
So today, as I drove right on through with our baby sleeping in the back, knowing that I get to see my Tim every day, I was lost in the moment, simply thinking. Thinking about all the times I had passed through there wondering what our future held. And now that it’s here, I just smiled because I was so happy to be going a different direction on the same road.
Ok, enough of the mushy stuff…
Here’s a little somethin’ for your Mother’s Day. I cry tears every time I watch this. It just gets to me. Every. Time. And not in the way you may think. It’s about 2 minutes long but it is SOOOO worth it. Maybe it’s because I grew up with brothers.
