We spent many sleepless nights awake working hard and slogging through problems. Countless sacrifices have been made. Experiencing the humility of not knowing, but being willing to learn. Sitting still and focusing harder than ever. And now here we are slogging through the wind and rain. Showers beating down on our back. Cheeks rosy from the chill of the wind. Unsure about the pathway home, but thrilled because we made it. We made it to the beach and it is absolutely glorious. A striking sense of peace and the joy of knowing that the slog was worth it because it brought us closer to where we want to be.
