Ever After

by Jennifer on April 20, 2016

The weight loss, the leaving of a marriage that no longer works, the wedding, the hiring, the graduation, the cradling of the baby after birth….the story always ends here.  And yet, in all the important ways, the story is just beginning.

I recently had a similar experience; yesterday, to be exact.  My house, my very own house, was funded and recorded at the county office.  The congratulations were swift and exuberant. And yet, in all the important ways, my house story is just beginning, although the purchase-of-the-house story was ending.  It was funded by my dear sister’s life insurance policy, which could have only come from her life ending here on Earth.

Ever after is made up of beginnings and endings.
