Thirteen Years Ago
Life has a tendency to throw curve balls. But it is the way in which you play the rest of the game that matters.
Thirteen years ago I enjoyed an afternoon wedding in a castle. It was my wedding. I remembered having my marriage license signed for the adventure that was to begin.
Today I didn’t celebrate that event. But I remember it and know that I would not have grown into the woman I am today without having had gone down that road.
Since that day, I’ve had bigger battles in my life than marriage, or even divorce. I’ve wanted a man to guide me and be with me through those battles. God has been rock through it all. He has reminded me of how strong I can be, and have to be.
I do still believe in marriage. But I only pray that these such challenges make me into an even better wife, better life partner, and better mom to my future kids.
In the meantime, I look at this picture, a reminder that I haven’t lost myself, my soul, in the process. And that is a blessing in itself.
I’d love to hear from you on your thoughts about this post.
Blessings to you in your journey.
