… a picture of something (or someone) you cannot live without.
I really couldn’t live without any one of these things! But, (and I know this might sound callous) my husband is the ONE thing I could never life without. I know I’m going to offend some people right now, but I’ll try to make my thoughts clear. I love my children, but a lot of that love comes from the fact that they are his! If anything were to, heaven forbid, happen to one of my children we could always have another. And not to say that children are replaceable, but when the one common factor that unites all four of them (Jared) is gone… I can’t even comprehend that fact for even a moment to put it into words.
I’ve lived through not having children and loosing pregnancies and it is hard and devastating, but survivable! But, as Heathcliff so eloquently says, “I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul!” And I add to that by saying that I cannot live without my better half, Jared!
