The Bridge....and a FREE giveaway!
I often think in pictures and for the past few years now with my girl, I have a picture of a bridge in my mind. Every contact I have with her is part of building that bridge. We each live on opposite ends of the bridge, but we are often able to use our bridge as our meeting spot.
Those visits, at the upper arch in the middle, where the view is beautiful, give us some common ground to share. There is no judgement there, no expectations, just love and acceptance. From there we can each go back to our own different worlds, live autonomously and do whatever we need to do to take care of ourselves...but we always know that there is this span of stone and mortar that join us together. That give us those small increments of time that we can be in the moment with each other.
The bridge is invaluable to us. It provides a clear open path for us to meet, to talk, to be with each other....we always know its there, its a comfort when things become scary. When it seems that our world is crashing around us....we can always meet on our bridge. It leaves a door open for my girl to find her way over to my side of the bridge where I live in relative peace and calm, when she is ready.
In hope and love....
