Life Changing Events
Twelve years seems like a long time, but to me it feels as if no time has passed. Twelve years ago, I walked into church and shook hands with the handsome man up above. While it took a little help from my pushy mom to get things going, once the ball started rolling it all fell into place.
I was home from Sicily and trying to just focus on finishing college and then going to graduate school. I had given up. I was 26 years old and I kept seeing all of these college peers who were younger than me getting married and I decided, That's it! I give up I quit. I don't care what Jaymi thought God was telling her, I give up on men. So when in April 2000 my Aunt Nina sent me an email telling me I should meet this nice young man in her singles Sunday school class my first thought was, No way am I getting set up again!
It's funny how when we finally quit on our plans for our timeline, God's timing kicks in and falls perfectly into place. Twelve years and I haven't regretted a day since.
I love you sweetie and I hope we enjoy many more years to come.
