I’m Not Just an Option

There’s no feeling quite like belittling yourself to the position of nothing more than an option, only to realize you’re not the option they chose. And because of the memory of that pain, I am so thankful to be starting a family with a man that doesn’t simply say he loves me, but chooses me every day…

He loved her, of course, but better than that, he chose her, day after day. Choice: that was the thing.
