We think we know ourselves…

We think we know ourselves.

We think we know what we’re capable of as parents and spouses and humans.

We think we know the depths of our strength and our love and our courage.

We think we know all of this…until we realize that we don’t.

Until we sit in a room watching our life unfold in the most beautiful and unexpected ways.

Until we stare another person in the face and see our deepest vulnerability reflected in their eyes.

Until we cry and we breathe and we reach for each other in ways that we didn’t even know were possible.

We think we know ourselves.

Until we realize that we don’t.

Until a moment comes along…and shows us everything…
