I get to be with Briar for some amount of time every day.
Every day she looks up at me and fills me with hope and joy.
She has changed everything.
I hope when she looks at me she sees everything.
I wish I could keep her safe her whole life.
Make sure know one ever hurts her.
Never let her feel snubbed, or attacked.
Protect her from sadness and loneliness.
You look around the world today and realize that there are just no guarantees.
The one promise I can make Briar is that I will always love her and bring her as much joy and protection as I can.
Again, it astounds me how badly loving her hurts. And, what sweet pain it is!
