That brings me to my second breakthrough. Chris told me that I had one in my dancing! And he also said that he is getting really excited about my progress. That is such a huge deal to me. Maybe it shouldn't be, but he tells it like it is when it comes to dance, and he has very high standards. So for him to say that is---well, it's a first. Just as a back ground Chris and I had the best summer ever swing dancing together, we started dating that summer. It was magical. Dancing, falling love. Perfect. Chris went on to become a well trained ballroom dancer, and I finished up my art degree and had our babies. I miss the time when we were equally yoked in the dancing department. Playing catch up has been no fun at times. Painful at times, wishing for the fun days of the past. I've had to really suck up my pride and deal with it. I'm so glad it's finally starting to feel worth it. Yay! Slowly, but surely, kind of like the progress on my chairs. When you look at what I started with, it's so difficult to see the possibility of beauty in pile of trash. Now that some of the sanding is done, it's starting to seem more realistic.
I'm not giving up... just like that little plant. Starting to see the sun!
I'm grateful for slowly but surely. Progress. Breakthroughs. Hope!
