When Tom and I were engaged, I imagined our children.
I didn't imagine Bradley's challenges though.
And for awhile I've been sad and felt like the fairytale had ended.
But this morning it dawned on me:
THE FAIRYTALE HAS NOT ENDED!
EVERY Fairytale has it CHALLENGES.
Sometimes it's a dragon, or a witch, or a villain.
The happily-ever-after isn't until AFTER the challenge is overcome.
You cannot have a fairytale if there is nothing to triumph over.
It has NOT ended!
I'm currently slaying the dragon.
AND I'M STILL GOING TO HAVE MY HAPPILY-EVER-AFTER!
