I couldn’t leave on that note for the weekend, because although I have moments of doubt, overwhelmingly I know that I chose right. My life is full of joy, tedium, tears, laughter, poopy diapers, slobber, hugs, and more. It’s full of love.
And for every instant that makes me look back and feel failure there are a thousand more to remind me that I am not. Like this one.
Just a boy and a girl and a ball and an ordinary afternoon that I will always be glad I was there to see.
