Looking back on my life several years from now, when I am old, I plan only to remember, not regret. I hope to wake up every day next to the man I love never wishing that life would have worked itself out differently, because I will have gotten everything that I have ever wanted. Each day will be a joyful celebration with family and friends because our love will unite, not tear down. My children will know what it means to be loved, without question; without regard for differences or judgements. I will tell each of them how special they are, and how blessed my life has been to be their daddy. And when I die it will not be because of a disease that I contracted. For a life lived fully, my breath will escape my body and I will simply pass away.
