An Open Letter to His Ex

What you so casually threw away, I've waited my whole life for.

Thank you.

Those two kids, full of love and laughter that you barely have time for, I can't have my own, so thank you for sharing yours with me.

It must be difficult to watch him move on and be happy while your plans crumble around you. But this was your choice, not his. With each choice comes consequence.

I'm grateful he looked within himself and found the strength you convinced him he did not have.

I'm grateful he believes in love so much that he was willing to trust me with his heart.

For you, I hope you find whatever it is that you're looking for. I hope you have the grace to recognize that he has made his choice, just as you did. And with that grace, I hope that you will step back so that we can move forward.
