When I was young, I told myself I would never marry. Strange thoughts for a little girl barely more than 7 years old, but there were situations in my childhood that formed that idea. I shut my heart down, thinking it would be easier not to have any pain or cause pain to anyone else. My Father in heaven was looking out for me more than I knew and must have chuckled when I made that vow. He knew that what I needed more than anything else to mend my broken heart was someone of incredible beauty in my life. So I grew up and stayed out of relationships because they were painful, complicated things to me. Then I moved away from it all and found him. His sweet and gentle manner captivated me. I never knew that a man could be so loving. He wooed me in ways I had never known.
It is years later and here we are, still together and in love. It hasn't always been easy. In fact at times, it's been more than a bit of a rollercoaster ride. The greatest gift I could have received today was written here. See why I fell in love, when I thought my heart was destined to be my own forever.
