Five

Five years ago we said our vows on the rooftop patio of an Irish bar and then went downstairs and partied all night. We ate burgers and corn on the cob and chocolate cupcakes. We laughed. We drank. We danced. We did not think that in five short years we would have a 2-year old mini dictator and a cancer diagnosis.

So much has changed in five years and nothing has changed in five years. I took so much for granted and now I feel almost bittersweet thinking about Hillary of five years ago. Hillary of five years ago felt like a genuine smile and a dash of enthusiasm could fix anything. Hillary of five years ago was so naive.
I'm almost positive that in another five years I will shake my head and sigh and think the same about Hillary of today.
