Becca Bill “I never could have imagined this”
My friend Becca Billingslea wrote this and I thought I would post it, for those of you who don’t read her blog. “Bill” doesn’t post often, but her posts are always worth the time spent reading. I have included an excerpt of her post below.
A breeze now began to comb my hair and cool the sweat on my face. David was playing fetch with Annie, our lab, as Meredith and I sat in the shade of the porch. I glanced at my sweet sister-in-law and caught her gazing at David as he threw that tennis ball with such masculine force. “Meredith…” I could tell I almost jolted her out of the adoration coma. “Meredith, when you imagined being married…like when you were younger and you thought about a husband, is this what you imagined.” Mere’s eyes were fixated on me as I spoke, but as I finished I could see her eyes begin to sort through the files inside her mind. She was as quiet as a painting. Her meek voice gently interrupted the only noise of the tennis ball bouncing off the ground and four legs pattered to retrieve. “I never knew what good of friends we would be,” she said. “I guess at the end of the day, I truly wanted and longed to be friends with my husband…but I never imagined it to be like this.” Her eyes then slowly drifted back to my brother like a boat taken by the current. “I never could have imagined this,” she said softly as if it were a secret.
