The wedding was a dream come true after years of school. Waiting, waiting, waiting and now all the stars are in alignment in the brilliant sky. The future never looked so bright.
First came the job and the career took off. A bit of a detour really. They say location is everything, but never mind. Then came the house tucked neatly away in the quiet. The future never looked so bright.
Taken by surprise we were when the little one came along. Perish the thought now of such a one not being here, but at the time, what an adjustment! They say it takes a village to raise a child and so it seems. The future never looked so bright.
Settled in our routine we are now with multiple jobs each, mortgages, loans and obligations. Beauty surrounds us. Charmed are the paths we take and the endeavors we forge. Mounds of bills and mountains of distance separate us. We’ve had a chat about it and now we know it’s the others fault. Taken by surprise we are that the dream is no longer full of shooting stars but now is more like a black hole with no light in sight.
