JOY

When he got down on one knee, I was beside myself.
When her heart beat on that sonogram, I was speechless.

When I got to go to both proms, with nice, cute boys, I was pretty dang pleased.
When I walked across those stages and grasped those diplomas, I was relieved.

When she was told she was in remission, I was was overjoyed.
When he was told the scans were clean and the prognosis was good, I was overwhelmed.

When my nephews were born, my heart swelled.
When we found the right house, in the right neighborhood, with the right play set, I was thrilled.

I have known pure joy. Andy. Addie. Mom and Dad. High school drama and growing families...amazing. Loyal friendships and a loving family. I have it pretty darn good.

But I am not sure that I have ever felt quite as good as him.
