There are so many things about the future I can't know right now, and in many ways that's a wonderful thing. A sad event earlier this week has our family facing uncertainty; thinking about our own and each other's mortality.
I was particularly affected last night by a seemingly insignificant constant as these thoughts were ruminating in my head. Since the day we got married Alexi has set up my toothbrush with toothpaste for me as we are getting ready for bed. If I'm out for the evening and he's asleep when I get home, I find it waiting for me. The constancy of this sweet detail of my life is one thing I know for certain.
