He sat there, lost in thoughts, feeling quite happy that he had made it. He couldn’t help it but let out a wide satisfying smile. All his efforts were finally being rewarded. They were paying off and he was quite more than content with the results he was getting. And how would he ever make it without her?
He looked at her, sound asleep on his lap, the most beautiful girl he’d ever seen. He knew he loved her and she loved him too. But the most amazing thing to him, was she had stuck by his side, unwavering, never flinching, from the struggles to the great place they were now.
He leaned over and kissed her forehead. He couldn’t believe that this was the same girl he’d fallen in love with when they were really young. Now living together so happily and expecting a child in a few months.
He whispered a prayer to God, giving thanks for everything and everyone in his life. He carried her to bed and lay her there slowly and carefully not to wake her up. He then entered in bed as well. Stared at the ceiling, thinking of all the things they had gone through and not believing that they had actually made it through.
And you know what was even more promising? That God was not yet done with him.
