There they – are: the two people I love most in the world.
I have been looking at other people’s Christmas family photos for at least a week now, feeling happy for them (of course) but nothing beyond happiness and good wishes, knowing all the while that these photos meant so much more to them.
And now it’s my turn to share a photo that other people will look at and say, “Well, that’s lovely.”
And for me, it means the world.
I don’t know what I was expecting to feel, seeing Simon again after five months of being apart. Excited? Trepidation? Joy?
What I felt was a coming home to a place I belonged. For the first time in a long time, I exhaled.
Am I happy now? Yes – but more than that. I feel at peace. I feel in the middle of a ball of love. And it feels right.
