I wouldn’t change a thing

You know you’ve got it good when you take a walk in the dark and the dark isn’t scary. The shadows don’t loom; they beckon. Inside those shadows is more opportunity.

You know you’ve got it good when what you love is made possible by someone you’re falling in love with.

You know you’ve got it good when he offers to carry you across the foot of mushy, ugly snow coating the earth.

You know you’ve got it good when you lay down on the ground next to where he is “laying down” on the swing, and he gets up, lifts you up almost effortlessly and places you on the swing he just vacated.

You know you’ve got it good when you can just sit and talk about the world and life and death and everything in-between and feel like the other person just gets you, you know?

You know you’ve got it good when his family seems to absolutely love you, and when he leaves the room, the conversation continues without anyone really even trying.

You know you’ve got it good when he runs down the hallway after not meeting you where he usually does and then he reaches around you and lifts you up, much to your surprise.

You know you’ve got it good when there are never any awkward moments.

You know you’ve got it good when your mom purposely makes an extra helping of dinner without telling you her plans to invite your boyfriend over for supper. When you ask if he can come over, she says “yes” without even blinking.

All I know is, based on all of this, I’ve got it good. I wouldn’t change a thing.
