It seems like forever ago that the rip tide carried us out. The water we are in is still deep, but each day I can see that we have swam a bit closer to shore. The load that we have been carrying is getting lighter. There is still a ton of weight. Nonetheless, I can feel the difference.
I imagine the future, the one in which all of the debt, mistakes, and bad memories are finally off our shoulders. I imagine us laying on the beach, hand in hand, arms tired and out of breath from treading water. Every muscle aching, but we are over joyed that we pulled through when so many other drowned under lighter loads.
We’re gonna make it.Share
