Day 26: “Blue”
When I think ‘blue,’ I think of this blue-eyed boy ... My absolute favourite human, he is truly my angel.
Throughout this photo challenge, I’ve written a lot about the things that I’ve done & the strategies I’ve used to deal with grief. What I don’t think I’ve done quite enough of is celebrating the PEOPLE who have been by side every step of the way. Friends, family, and my forever love, pictured here - Mackenzie Brown 💙💙 I remember the night that we first met, his eyes were what stood out to me. It sounds soooo cheesy, and I admit it’s even cringe worthy to say aloud, but the minute our eyes locked, there was a spark. A few weeks later he came to pick me up, it was the first time I saw him wearing his glasses. I remember walking towards the car and noticing the glasses, and seeing the way he’d pulled a toque on over his curls, and somehow in that moment I knew. This guy was the one.
I’m so grateful my mom got to know Mac. She loved him, she knew I loved him, and she knew he loved me. I’d told her I hoped to marry him one day, and she would have been so stinkin’ enthralled to be here to see it happen.
With today’s prompt, I want to thank & celebrate my Macaroon. He’s been my strongest support, my biggest advocate, and in my darkest times - he’s pushed me to love myself. I can’t believe how lucky I am that I get to spend the rest of my life with him. The way that he’s held me strong throughout my journey with grief reassures me that together, we can withstand it all. There is no one I’d rather do life with.
