Cautionary Hope

It seems like there's been a change in my husband, and a fairly quick one, once it started. Since we went to the pumpkin patch there have been a lot of nights where he's told me that he enjoyed himself, something that he hadn't been doing for quite some time. He's also started making a lot of plans for the future, just little things like hanging Christmas lights, or planing to dress up along with our little guy next Halloween. Sure, these things are small, but in the grand scheme of everything that's gone on, they're monumental.

I love that I'm starting to get my husband back. I'm just cautious. I don't want to get ahead of myself, or push him ahead of himself. So I sit back, and I watch these changes happening, and I smile.

And I breath. I didn't realize that I'd been holding my breath all this time.
