The Day You’re Supposed to Heal
The internet told me it takes 18 months to heal from divorce (547.5 days)
“Siri, how many days until February 28, 2021?”
I want to write ahead of the day so that when it comes, I can welcome it for whatever it is, maybe without noticing at all.
This is my day. An 18-month old is still testing boundaries, wondering to herself, “Can I really do that?” and delighting when she discovers for herself that “Yes! Yes, she can!”
