It took me a long time to realize that I was always waiting for something to tell me I had made it, I had reached some never-really-defined checkpoint in my life and everything was sorted out. I didn't really know what that "you did it" moment was going to look like, exactly, but I believed it was coming.
Imagine my surprise to learn that it wasn't a moment at all. It was a person. It was Ric. Having him in my life is my feeling of accomplishment and celebration. It wasn't getting a job or moving to a town or buying a house. It was always about finding the person who made me feel complete.
I was waiting for my husband. And it was worth every second of the wait.
