Standing still...

"There are many ways of going forward, but only one way of standing still."
Franklin D. Roosevelt  

Lately, my life has been moving so fast, with barely a minute to catch my breath or to take it all in, and exhale. Through this madness, being sick has been a blessing in disguise. It has forced me to be motionless at times, and fully appreciate this wonderful husband of mine. He has watched over me, cooked for me, cleaned for me, and has tucked me into bed on various occasions. He brought me lovely flowers to cheer me up and brighten up our apartment. 

There are times when I have taken that for granted, but this time, I watch silently, with a prayer of gratitude in my heart, for the great joy he is in my life. He is my best friend, my soul mate, my love, and so much more. 

I love that there are so many ways in which we can go forward, but only one way of standing still—and I want to stand still by his side, for all eternity.
