I have a fabulous husband.....
A couple of weeks ago I was having a really bad day. As I was sitting at home feeling crappy I saw someone pass the windows. I didn't know who it was, but was not in the mood to talk to anyone. I knew our doorbell didn't work and just wanted to pretend no one was home. However curiosity got the best of me and I couldn't not see who was there....so I quietly walked over to the door to peek out the peep hole....I wanted to see who it was at least. Right as I got to the door the person knocked. I looked out and there was a lady with flowers. I opened the door to find this beautiful bouquet with a note from Austin saying, "Just to brighten your day. I love you and hope you have a good day."
I was really glad I decided to peek out and see who was there.
I have a super sweet husband and am so grateful for him!
Austin and I met in February 2007 through mutual friends. We started dating and were engaged by the end of April. We were married July 11, 2007. Austin is the youngest of 5 children and I am the oldest of 5. We are loving life together, and during the first seven years of marriage have lived in 4 different states. After 5 years of infertility struggles we were blessed with our amazing son Jud, and he is the light of our life. We are hopeful that many more children will be in our future....each day is a blessing.
"Come what may, and love it".
I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully tailored clothes.....and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp....I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really there, and that I really lived.
