Isaiah 6:8

8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

My Soulmate, My Friend, My Frank!

I am one really lucky woman.  Although it took me two tries to get it right...I am married to the funniest(as you can tell by his picture), most marvelous man ever.  I consider him my best friend.  We talk about anything and everything.  We love our children passionately.  He makes me laugh....he makes me feel beautiful and safe.  He is something else.  Yesterday was his birthday and I felt bad that he had to share his special day with me on Mother's Day.  Saturday we met with the Rock Mills congregation and when we left I told him I would take him out to we stopped at the Galley in Roanoke....and enjoyed seafood while we still can.  It was fun and a couple from Rock Mills joined us.  Last night after Kat and Brian came and gave us our presents....we went to Winn-Dixie and got some steaks and fixings and while he grilled them(for Mother's Day), I did the rest of the fixings(for his birthday.)  I also picked up a tiny cake and we shared it too....we also shared it with Beau, our miniature dachsund....yesterday was his birthday too.  He loved his tiny wedge of cake.  Birthdays are it is time to pack, move, finish the school year...but today, Monday...I feel blessed with my life.  I am blessed with an awesome husband, good friends, and children.  I wrote a little poem for Frank a while back...thought I would share it with you in honor of his birthday.  Happy Monday to ALL!

Butterfly jackhammers

rock my courage and

chip away at my armour.

Each step I take feels heavy and unsure.

The walk toward you is endless

A few more feet...

Light floods my eyes

I see you...smiling.

Your smile speaks volumes.

Your kiss takes my breath.

I laugh to myself and think,

I was worried because?

Your arms enfold me...

I am safe.

I am warm.

I am happy.

I am complete with my soulmate.

How wonderful -- for you both. You've got quite a change coming up -- sounds like it will be a great move for you. Thanks for your visit -- we've fallen in love with Sanibel and are already looking forward to our next visit.

Ahhh! That was so sweet and romantic! Loved it!!! Good luck with your move! It's such a pain and upheaval, but usually worth it in the end.

Enjoy your Tuesday!
