May 21. A momentous day. A day worth noting. Remarking. Celebrating.
A day like any other day, except, this day was 'the day'. Nine years ago today, at 9:14 am. This is the day it all ended and began again. This is the moment that changed, everything. Forever. This is the time when for one moment, time stopped.
and between the stopping and the beginning, in between the moments of time passing on, everything changed. Everything shifted.
In between the stopping and the beginning, the past began to unravel. The future began to turn. In a new direction. A different way. Another path.
It was on this morning, nine years ago today, that two police officers walked in and arrested the man who promised to love me, to never hurt me and then who set about hurting me in ways I never could imagine.
It was on this morning, nine years ago today, that life began again filled with the promise of all that I could be when I gave up believing that his abuse was all that I deserved.
I am blessed.
Nine years ago today at 9:14 am I received the miracle of my life.
Nine years ago today I was set free from his abuse. Free to live this one wild and precious life fully alive in the rapture of now.
Nine years ago today, I got my life back and life has never been the same.
I am remembering today. Not the bad times. The pain and sorrow.
No. I am remembering the joy, the freedom, the love I have experienced since that moment at 9:14 am when time stopped...
... and my life began again.
I am grateful.
I am blessed.
I am in Love.
