You know, one day about 10 years ago I was sitting on my sister's front porch. We were having cocktails with a good friend of my sister's and were talking the typical girl talk. Her friend looked at me and said something I will never forget. It was something to the effect of "You've done it. Awhile back we were all sitting here wondering when we would meet "that" guy. And now here you are, engaged and so happy."
I had that same thought sitting at the breakfast table with my sweeties this morning. I looked at all their sweet faces (literally, due to the syrupy waffles) and thought "I've done it". There was a time when I thought I would never have all this and now here I am, years later and I have it.
Now I must temper all this happiness with reality. I still get mad, frustrated and overwhelmed. But that is part of life too. And the "good times" wouldn't be as good without the "hard times". The hard times are what mold and shape us into who we are today. And they make life just that much sweeter.
Thanks for all the good times & hard times, honey!!! I love you as much today as I did 9 years ago today. Thank you for all the blessings you have given me. We are rich in love & blessings!!!
