Do you ever play that game … “one year/month/day ago at this exact moment, I was (insert memory here)”?
I do it all the time. Especially on special occasions.
Every year on Lily’s birthday I pause at exactly 11:20 a.m. to reflect on the amazing moment of her birth.
Exactly seven years ago right now, I was cutting a rug at my wedding reception at a country club in a beautiful little town along the North Carolina coast. Huge grin plastered across my face, tattered wedding dress train slung over my arm, squeezing the hand of my new husband.
I got lucky. I married one of the good ones.
(In fact, he’s upstairs right now consoling a fussy Sophie.)
And I can honestly say that I’m as happy today as I was in that blissful moment seven years ago.
