"It was our wedding anniversary earlier this week. Some days the weight of what that means in an uncertain future can be too much.
"Then it’s the closing of new day. A new day you are grateful to see. A new day you didn’t think you’d feel well in.
"And you dance. As your kids laugh and film. The sun sets, and you realise how wonderful it is to reach another milestone (and you park the sadness).
"And you smile. And you are at one in the moment only. Because for any of us that’s all we ever have anyway.
"And you give thanks to have people in your life that are the very back bone you remain upright on.
"Sebastien – Thank you for holding my hand in the darkness and dancing me back into the light. I love you. Always."
