when it seems inevitable that someone will drive you off the road or that you will drown in your own fears and insecurities and it seems like all of life is against you and just when you're ready to break down, you see him in a surprising place and it's enough to make you want to keep pressing on.
1st day

right at home

and then, after you see him and he hugs you and says so confidently that it makes you confident too that, "it has to get better. it just has to" and you shrug in hope and wiggle into a groove that works and find that he was right, it is better. and it wasn't that hard to get here.

let love and faithfulness never leave you. bind them around your neck write them on the tablet of your heart
