At that moment a smile came across my face. Without him telling me directly, I knew in my heart that he was satisfied that we were doing all of this together. That we were a team and that he viewed his/our life together as a success. I couldn't help but be grateful for that simple summary he offered of his optimistic view of our future which testified he has faith and hope in us. in himself. in God. in our little family.
