in medias res

Sometimes it feels so overwhelming that I fear we will disappear in the winds of a gathering storm. And yet, we are still here, you and I, together, and our scruffy, red-headed boy sleeping in the other room and now another baby, a baby, and I feel for the first time in my life that I’m on the brink of making deliberate decisions rather than floating along like jetsam with whichever way the current is flowing. I don’t know where we go from here; the details are still fuzzy and a radio static jumbles any clear direction. But your smile at me from across the room tells me that all the important pieces, at least, are in their places. “It will be okay,” you say, and my heart fills the way it did when I first saw you from a distance and knew you were the man I would marry.
