Our Story

The unexpected miracles and the beginning of a promise

I've never really been one for finding love on-line, but it was always something that I could use to occupy my free time. I was used to getting the messages of things I would rather forget at times until one day I received a message that simply said, "Hello, how are you today?" I was so intrigued at the simple statement that I was compelled to respond. At the end of that message was a friendship like none other. God knew when I needed a friend the most and he sent to me the best friend I could ever pray for. He could sense that I didn't trust easily and he was patient enough to show me that all he wanted was to get to know me, the real me and be my friend. Through all of that, he showed me that he could love me like no other and has loved me like that since day one.

He popped the question!!!!!

The conversation of marriage had been going on for a while, it's almost like we knew from the beginning what our destiny was....(or at least he did!) After talking about it for months, I took a visit to North Carolina and jokinly asked him when I was going to get my engagement ring, not knowing that he really had one for me. With the saddest eyes I have ever seen him with, he tried to change the subject and when that didn't work because of the little persistent person I am, his eyes watered and he began to explain to me that he had a ring for me, but in his excitement to see me he had the ring on him at work and lost it. Refusing to add to his sadness, my outside explained that everything was ok and it would work out while my inside is crumbling and crying hysterically. While sitting in the bed watching TV, he comes to the side of the bed, on his knees and stated that he was really glad to see me and to have me in North Carolina and the one thing that would make that trip even better would be if I would agree to being his wife...and he presents that gorgeous thing on my left hand..(that was supposed to be lost!) Even if he had given me a ring pop I would have said yes in a heartbeat!
