The downside of getting up at 1:30pm

…is that you’re probably going to be wide awake at 3am.

Once again, I find myself lying here, deep in thought. Unable to turn off my brain. Too much going on in there, I guess. Thoughts, emotions, excitement. It’s all there. And it’s all good.

In the midst of it I looked down into the crook of my arm, where Chet was happily cuddled up. He looked back at me, and I thought about how it’s so easy to love unconditionally. All it takes is the knowledge–the confidence–that the other loves you in the same way.

I love Chet and Min unconditionally, because I know in my heart that they love me completely. I have close friends whom I feel the same way about. And I’m looking forward to the day when I can look at one very special person, and know that our love is unique and unconditional. That’s the best feeling in the world.

I would hope that everyone feels it at least once in their lives.
