The Day Before You

Four years ago tomorrow, I met the man that would become my husband. Four years ago today, I had spent my typical Saturday night at the club and had made plans to visit an "estranged friend" the next day. I could have never known that a simple lunch date would have turned into this. The minute Jeramie and I were introduced, I knew I had found something completely different than anything I had ever experienced. He was (and still is!) handsome, charming, funny, and polite. The more we talked, the more we realized how much we had in common, and even our mutual friend picked up pretty quickly on our instant connection. I was amazed, and thankful.

On our wedding day one and a half years later we danced to "The Day Before You" by Rascal Flatts. The lyrics could not have been any more perfect for us. I will be forever thankful that I don't have to go back to January 15, 2005; to the heartbreak that every other guy had left me with, to the insecurities, to the longing to be loved so deeply by someone. January 16th was my new beginning and I wouldn't want to have shared the past four years with anyone else!

It's been an amazing journey, but I get the feeling the best is yet to come.

I love you, Jeramie!

The Serenity Prayer

In light of our most recent news I thought I would post something that's been so relevant to me since this pregnancy started. Some of you may already be familar with it, but anytime I'm going through a hard time, my dad always quotes this prayer and it screams at me everytime.

The Serenity Prayer
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
the courage to change the things I can;
and the wisdom to know the difference.

Daddy just reminded me of this prayer on Christmas Eve and it automatically came back to me today.

It sounds so simple, doesn't it?
