My Steady

It is nine years today.  Nine years since we inhaled salty wind, peering over boardwalk rails to glimpse the icy crest of waves.  Nine years since a 21-year-old boy asked a 20-year-old girl to be his wife.  Nine years since he took my hand, trembling from cold and excitement and nerves, holding it steady as he slipped a ring on my finger, anticipating our forever promise.  Nine years since I whispered yes through giddy lips...

Still feeling much like a girl, navigating life and marriage and motherhood, I differ not from the winter waves, rising high and falling hard.  But even  now he clasps my hand and remains My Steady.  "Many waters cannot quench beloved is mine and I am his."

  5. Kristen, I'm liking your topic about brevity. I'm interested in doing that for our next ST Email & Online publication. I enjoyed the article you submitted, and I see from your blog that you are meditating on how life is just a vapor.

    Let me think on a few things and I'll shoot you an email early next week! Have an awesome weekend!
