That, as I’m sure you’ll remember, was after I knelt down, reached into my pocket, realized my jeans were too tight to pull out the ring, so then had to stand back up, actually pull out the ring, and finally get back down on bended knee.”
“Sure, I wouldn’t exactly describe us as coordinated. Our lives haven’t always gone as planned, but we’ve seen it through, together. I know we have a lot more to see.”
“This current chapter feels particularly cruel and heavy. It is. So much has been stolen from you. It keeps taking and taking and taking. But you are faithful and strong. Fear is not our future. You’ve lost sight but not vision.”
