Thanksgiving Countdown Day 7: A Boy

Day 7: Tomorrow is Thanksgiving!!! Woo-hoo!  Bring on the turkey!

But before I dig in, I can’t let this Thanksgiving pass without giving my gratitude for a boy that was placed in my life eighteen years ago…my husband.

We met in junior high at church and enjoyed all the wonderful things that most eighth graders enjoy…political debate, religious debate…really anything and everything was a debate with us…  Okay, so maybe that wasn’t what most eighth graders enjoyed, but that was us!…at least at the time.  I would get fired up and he would somehow maintain composure and have the nerve to laugh at my frustration.  I wanted to smack him and marry him all at the same time!

Though both of our lives took many twists and turns in high school and beyond, we somehow ended up right back together.  But the second time around it wasn’t just a friendship I held dear…it was a love I knew I never wanted to lose again…a love that began when I met that boy so many years earlier, during a time that I didn’t know whether to hurt him or hug him.  Suddenly one day the answer was clear…I wanted to hug him!…for the rest of my life.

Sean Gordon,

Today I am thankful that with you…I walk a little slower. I linger a little longer. I laugh a little louder.  I think a little harder.  I love a little stronger.

I’m thankful that with you…I cut the pumpkin pie two days early =). I love you!




*Side Note to Family:  Don’t worry…there’s another pie! =)
