{The Story of Us - Part One}

The story of "us" began 8 years ago today. I had just spent Labor Day with my family and my best friend's family out east on Long Island. It was a rough day for me because my best friend had invited this guy friend of ours to come along. He was so into her and she claimed they were just friends but that day it seemed a little more than that to me. (side note: they are now married with 2 kids!) I was sulking and feeling bummed because yet again, another one of my younger friends seemed to have found Mr. Right while I was still waiting for "the one".

A little background: a few weeks before that I had gone out east again with my family, only this time to visit my aunt and uncle at their camp site. On the way home I had a little chat with God. Over the years He had given me words about getting married so I knew it was in His plan for my life but I just didn't know when. That night I told Him point blank, "I know you have someone for me. You've promised me a husband and I believe you'll bring us together when it's Your time. I'm done asking. I'm not going to beg." That was it. I really was done praying about it. Not because I didn't have faith to pray. It's just that I had prayed and pleaded long enough. I had to let it go.

Somewhere between this conversation with God and Labor Day, I had created an account on Crossdaily. It was really a christian pen pal site and I guess you could use it to meet people. I had a friend at work take a picture of me one day with the digital camera and uploaded my photo never in a million years thinking I'd ever meet anyone. I got your typical crazy emails from foreign men from Africa and the like professing their undying love for me and telling me that they wanted to marry me (which if you knew me, you'd think nothing of this. I always seemed to attract foreigners lol ). Yup. In their first email and all. lol Umm, no thanks. Then the morning after Labor Day, the day I had been feeling down, I got an email from an American (lol) who actually lived 40 minutes away (he had written the email the night before - Labor Day) Initially I was a bit freaked out. Someone close by? What if he was nuts? This is the internet after all. I wrote him back anyhow and there our relationship began.

To be continued..............on our Anniversary in October. :)
