Seems like only yesterday............



It seems like only yesterday that I woke up with alot of craziness going on at my house. It was exactly 12 years ago today in fact. I got up and saw alot of people there working on my mother's hair and helping her to get ready for the upcoming events of the day. I casually strolled out and began to watch television and have cereal with my dad. It was to be the last of this kind of day. I was about to become Mrs. Jeffrey L. Taylor. I wasn't nervous one bit. In fact, it seemed like the most natural thing I could possibly do. Jeff and I met on August 10, 1991. My pastor, Danny Tesseneer and his wife, Denise, set me up on a blind date. It was to be the turning point of my life. I had many relationships before Jeff. I had even thought I loved someone once. Not until I met Jeff did I really know this kind of love. We started out as good friends. Then we evolved into best friends. Before I knew it, I was totally in love. He remains this day, the love of my life. I barely remember life before him. God has been so good to me in ways that I could never deserve. Many people go through their lives without knowing true love. God has shown me what it is to love someone besides myself through my husband. He is the leader in our home and I am so thankful for that. I never have to worry about where he is or what he is doing. Is he perfect? No, but he's all mine and I love him with all of my heart. Looking back 12 years, I wouldn't change one day! I only look down the road and pray, selfishly, for 60 or 70 more years with my handsome, smart, Godly husband!!!! Happy Anniversary!!

That book is Aunt Vickie's from that study with Kathi Holcomb. It is awesome! You know Kathi has moved and we miss her tremendously but we have a new teacher for the Thursday morning Bible Study and she is doing a good job.

Okay so you know I have to ask now, What is Will going to be for Halloween?!!
