You are the untucked side to my hospital corners
You are the the collared shirt to my yoga pants
You are the beer to my wine, the whiskey to my vodka, the coffee to my tea, and the Gatorade to my water.
I am the marathon in your golf game
I am the veggies to your steak
I am the spend to your save
I am the test in your patience
I am conservation. You are conservative.
You are law. I am equality.
I feel the passion. You search for facts.
I am the storm. You are the calm.
We take the time and make the effort to listen to and learn from one another. We celebrate and argue together. We agree to disagree. We don’t have it all figured out, but we’ll figure it out together.
We are a balancing act, acting as both the support and security net for each other. And I wouldn’t want it any other way.
I am…still smiling
