A Tribute To Our First "No"

Dear No,

We love you.

We cherish you.

We respect you.

We wouldn’t be where we are today without you.

You have shown us doors that we could only open because of you.

You did not shatter us.

In fact, you encouraged us.

You gave us hope that even though it was a “No” today, tomorrow will be a “Yes!”

The people we have met because of you have helped us grow.

The lessons we have learned have made us wiser.

We do not shun you.

We welcome you with arms wide open.


Brittney and Nick
