And I'm changing.
Life has its way of doing that.
(God does, too.)
I'm not who I used to be.
(And I'm loving it.)
Our family isn't who we used to be.
(And we're loving it.)
Sometimes I wish it didn't feel so isolating and costly
to be different.
But I'm finding there are people
that welcome with open arms
rather than furrowed brows,
and I have found more freedom
to find those
who offer support and love.
I'm leaving 2016 bruised by its afflictions.
But I'm also leaving it more sure of who I am.
And I'm leaving it more sure of what we need.
For now, that's okay.
I know they're out there somewhere.
I'll keep looking.
I don't know the where, how, and when.
But now I know the what and why.
