Love endures through the flames

About a year and a half ago, 4 days in intensive care, 2 surgeries, and months of recovery taught me an invaluable life lesson.  Before that time, I had never allowed myself to need someone, hadn’t ever wanted that level of vulnerability, simply couldn’t bring myself to trust anyone to that degree.  Being forced to depend on someone, and joyously finding that they could be depended on, changed that.  It taught me trust on a deep and beautiful level, and created a bond that under ordinary circumstances, might never have been  possible.  Six months following my “walk through the flames,” the tables were turned and it was he who needed me.  It was a hard year for the both of us, and we each had our turn to rescue the other, but what we found was true love endures, and can even grow, through the flames.

The inspiration to share this story came after I snapped this pic through the fireplace between two rooms of my home.  This wonderful gem from C&D Designs is actually an entire wall with a modern pass-through fireplace that can be enjoyed from both sides, as this pictures so beautifully illustrates.
