So I guess this post is a celebration of that. No matter what happens after this point, this little story and I have come a long way together. Even on the days when I look at it and think to myself, "I've read this so many times that I just can't bear to read another word", there is a deeper place that cherishes those words. Because I did what I set out to do. I captured on the page what I wanted to capture. The reason I ever started this story in the first place was because I needed to hold on to something that was precious to me.
I needed to make sure that I didn't forget.
