"We keep this love in a photograph
We made these memories for ourselves
Where our eyes are never closing
Hearts are never broken
And time's forever frozen still."
Ed Sheeran

Minutes before we hugged good-bye today I asked my husband to snap a photo of me and my dad. One tight squeeze, two easy smiles...countless, loving heartbeats passing between us. The heartbeats from that moment. The heartbeats that have filled our lives as father and daughter. All of them seemed to pass between us in this moment. So, today, I needed this moment frozen. I don't know how many more heartbeats we'll share along the journey...but as long as we have memories to make, I'll be sure to freeze as many as I can.
