I woke up 19 years ago today, alone in my bed, in a small house in Earle, AR that I shared with my precious 4 year old son, Brandon.

Life was an adventure to say the least.

We made the best of what we had and didn't dwell on what we didn't have. The only time that my son got to go to McDonald's was when my mom and dad took us. But, we were content.

I said "we were content" if that is all God had planned for us but I didn't feel happy nor whole. Jesus promises to be a father to the fatherless in Psalm 68:5 A father of the fatherless and a judge and protector of the widows is God in His holy habitation.

I was missing a piece of my heart that longed to be whole again that would be filled with a husband to love me and a father who would love Brandon.

When I woke up on February 23rd, 1991...I was a giddy 28 year old, bride-to-be but I fell asleep that night in Harrison, AR, in a remote cabin...no longer alone in a bed, but in the arms of my knight in shining armor, my protector, my provider, my lover, my best friend but most of all...as Mrs. Roger W...wife, mother and step-mother.

Life is still an adventure but just at a much better level. God is good and so is my life.

I love you, Roger! Thank you for 19 wonderful years and for being the husband and father that God has called you to be.
P. S. When I have more time...I will share with my bloggy friends just what I did to my wonderful husband to be able to celebrate our anniversary alone this past weekend. Stay tuned...you don't want to miss this. lol

Have a wonderfully blessed day!
