I am tired after multiple nights of sleep interrupted by hopping on one leg to the bathroom, of taking pain pills and trying to get comfortable. I wake up next to my husband and look into his deep brown eyes and feel the warmth of him, and in a moment, all that is lost is put into place behind this. My heart swells with love beyond what I imagined, and I think, "Here is my gift today; here is the door."
God, give me your perspective.
