The Dawning of a New Day
By: Megan Newman
I promised all of you something special today, to make up for being MIA this past week. I have mentioned it a couple times within our community on Facebook and Twitter, but I will reiterate, as a matter of fact I will reiterate with a little more detail.
Monday September 2, 2013. It is much more than Labor Day for my husband and I. It is the 1 week mark for having my entire family in one place again, under one roof, eating the same meals, breathing the same air, watching the same TV, hearing I love you’s, good night’s, and good morning’s in person, not via the phone. Cheering our son on for every small milestone he has and the number of times we’ve said “keep going little buddy” for every move he makes that is one step closer to him walking. The atmosphere is peaceful, my heart is full, and I am enthralled by the togetherness that I have longed for for nearly 7 months.
However, that is not the only reason for the title of this article, “The Dawning of a New Day.”
What’s the other reason? Two years ago today, I married my best friend.
In these past two years we have had our ups, downs, “love strengthening” times, and times we were so over the moon neither one of us wanted to come back to earth. Through it all we have overcame. We have endured. We have strengthened the bond of our family.
My advice to you. Fight for what you love. Do not take that out of context because you should not ever stand for any sort of abuse and that includes degrading comments, but in a whole do not give up on what you love fight for it.
Back on track, couldn’t give you guys something to read without some sort of advice, could I?
Keep on going… the goodness of this post has just began, because I am going to jump back to last Monday morning August 26, 2013.
Homecoming was planned for early Monday morning, and upon arriving with a cranky baby in one arm and an empty stroller in the other hand, we patiently waited. The anticipation of showing my son all of the cool things that Daddy does while he is at work mixed with an unexplainable sense of anxiety about reuniting.
After 7 long months of waiting and anticipating this very moment, our physical heart strings were wrapped around each others that brought us from three individuals to one, again.
When you are faced with the most heart-wrenching of times, times that could so easily break your spirit, remember this: in the end everything we do is for love We can move mountains with love. It may not be the love of a person, but the love of a passion, the love of a thing. Regardless of what it is you will face a storm. With what you love comes territory that you have to stake out and truly stand your ground for. However, on the other end of that storm comes the most miraculous heart warming feeling, a feeling that everything has turned out exactly how it is meant to be.
