A New Years Eve Conversation

We sit and watch the fire, relaxed by it's radiant warmth, and mesmerized by the flames.

"Remember, I loved you before you were glamorous."

I laugh and look over at him.

"Before I was guh-lamorous?"

His tone stays serious and sincere.

"I fell in love with you when you were more...simple.  When you were just you."

I sigh, and think back to the day we met. My eyes travel back to the flames.

"I was broken."

"You weren't broken.  Your spirit had won.  That spirit- that was the part of you I fell completely in love with." 

Heartbreak opens for even breaking is opening...My spirit takes journey, my spirit takes flight, and I am not running.  I am choosing. I am broken.  I am broken open.  Breaking is freeing.  Broken is freedom.  

I am not broken; I am free.

-Dee Rees, Through the Character of Alike

The song in my heart today- I Was Here
