Fourteen years ago I stood in the same place I stood tonight. I was 21 and about to fall for the Midwestern boy with the green eyes who was trying to steal third base. Spring on the Washington DC mall – it was a cherry blossom love story.

I couldn’t have known.

I couldn’t have known that fourteen years later I would be standing on that exact same spot with that same boy.

That same boy and our two sons.

Life maps itself without our realizing. Without knowing we are standing at an X-marks-the-spot point in time we live on oblivious.

Until moments like tonight.

When we get to see what full circle looks like.
