My Husband & I have been married 11 years. Man it seems like yesterday. As they say, Time Flies when you're having fun. We met at Church. I was church hopping at the time. My daughter left for college in 94 and i wanted to find a new church. (Being a single parent forever. I had this New Life Now.) LOL A friend of mine asked me to come to her church and check out this cute guy that started coming. LOL So i went and ended up sitting right next to him. I felt like i knew him forever. But he wanted nothing to do with me. He went through a painful divorce and did not want a relationship with me or anyone else for that matter. That was ok. I still got to see him at Church & CMA (Christian Motorcycle Assc. /Biker Rallies & Our local Chapter Bible Studies) I got to see him, and know him a little better that way. I fell in love with his heart. He was so sweet! I prayed and told God at one point.. "I just wanted to be his friend" Well that was May of 96 that we met.
My same friend that invited me to her church was having a House Warming Party November 96. Her and her husband had bought a new home. When i got to her house for the Party i asked her if Charlie was invited. She said yes. Cool!! Charlie and i ended up sitting at a table in the corner pinned between people and the wall. So neither one of us could get out. We just talked. He asked me for my phone number and asked if i would go out with him sometime. I said yes i would. (finally) Well our first date we went to dinner and a movie and parked by the lake and just talked for the longest time. The feelings of knowing him forever came back again. I didn't want the evening to end.
The next day i called my dad and told him about my 1st date with Charlie. Charlie called me that same afternoon and i told Charlie that i called my dad and told him about him . He said... i called my Mom and told her about you.. "WOW" We knew that God was doing something but it was happening sooo fast.. 2 months later He proposed to me on bended knee in my living room. We were married 4 months later, in the Church we met in. When i say He is God's gift to me I mean that with all my heart. God is so Good. He had a plan for our life that i could have only dreamed of. And It Came True!! "To God be the Glory"
Do we have a perfect marriage? No But we love eachother and we're committed to one another for life. And I still think... "He's Hot" LOL
We have a sitter for tonight. We are going to dinner ?? but we are definitely going to a movie (Narnia)
We've been working on the house yesterday and today getting it ready for the Tyvek Wrap & starter strip. Then we can start the siding. I never told you what color it was. You'll have to wait and see. (soon)
Thanks for stopping!! And Have a Blessed Weekend!
