Best Afternoon Ever

“Dad, that was the best afternoon ever!” Unsolicited, unexpected appreciation and unconditional love that totally validated the inner battle I went through and the freedom I needed to be able to make the decision I made to let everything else go and make that amazing afternoon happen.
