A Big Day


Today is a good day.

Today is a day that Dan and I will remember for the rest of our days.

Today greeted us with the reminder that difficult times do pass and happiness is often right around the corner.

I am very delighted to announce that this morning, the 1st of February, 2010, my fiance (and the love of my life) received his Fiance Visa from the United States Government which means that within the week, we will once again be together in the same room, the same state, the same country, the same continent.

For 14 months now we have been kept apart - waiting and hoping for this moment to come. Those 14 months have been filled with a roller coaster of emotions (and more Skype conversations than we can count).

As I type this it is hard to contain the tears. This is big. Our lives can start once again. We can officially press the play button again which was involuntarily put on pause by so many forces out of our control.

We can breath. Breath deep. Deep long breaths of letting go of the sadness of being apart and the fear of the unknown. We can make plans.

Plans! Oh how I am excited for real plans. Plans are a luxury that we have not had in any tangible form other than desperate hope.

As the hours go by on this day, I am feeling it all slowly sinking in and getting more and more excited. When I got the news at 4am, I was extremely happy and relieved, but it is taking some time for this to really hit me.

And it will hit me. It will happen. It is happening. At last.

WHOO HOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
