Gratitude

To my Loving Husband…


Every parent’s dream is for their daughter to find a person who will love her more than they do. Besides my Faith, marrying you is the most important decision of my life! I always wanted to be with a man who had equal or greater faith than me.  You are the dream husband every girl wants to have, but I am blessed to have you all for myself.


You are a great leader! Thank you for keeping me safe and showing me direction in life. You are a man's man and also my pillar of strength.  I thank God for giving me such an understanding and caring husband. You are the perfect man for me. Thank you for the selfless and countless times you have gone out of your way to make sure we are comfortable. You are providing us with a life wherein we can enjoy and fulfill personal, lifelong desires.

Thank you for believing in me and supporting me. Without you, I know I wouldn’t be living this dream! "Thank you" are small words to express my gratitude for making my life worry-free. Thanks for the amazing chapters in my life.

You are an awesome, consistently loving father to our daughters and sons, and our grandchildren! 

A loving marriage is not measured by dating and courtship, but rather by how well the couple can cross the hurdles of life. Thanks to you, we are always the front runners.

I will forever remember the day I said yes, as it was the first day towards a life filled with joy and contentment.

Thank you for loving me.  I love you, forever!

To my Family (you know who you are!)...

You have been with me through thick and thin, when life was so full of woes and pain! When we chose to grow together, it was the beginning of the legacy that God ordained for our family – one of continual covenants of abiding love.  I will be eternally grateful for the legacy of Faith laid in my heart and nurtured in my life as a teenager. That Faith is my Guiding Light in every way! I am grateful for all your prayers and support (known and unknown!).  Thank you for being there through my struggles. You have stood by me when it was tough to stay or see light at the end of the tunnels I was passing through.  I am grateful for every word of life and encouragement. I am grateful for every hand up when I was down. I am grateful for all of your participation in who I was becoming. Now that I am experiencing the blessing of executing this God-inspired, revealed, confirmed dream, you are still here, walking with me toward my destiny! I am even more grateful for our eternal relationship!  If I haven’t said it enough:  I believe you are all amazing people (old and young).  I admire your fortitude and strength.  I am so glad it was God’s divine providence to put us together.  I love you!

To everyone else that impacted my life (you know who you are)…

There are too many of you to number and I do not want to miss anyone.  I am thankful for all of your relationships with me (short term or extended).  Some of you were leaders. Some of you were bosses. Some of you instructed and trained me – in my Faith, and the importance of prayer, the dynamics of healthy family life, being a good parent, honoring relationships, managing finances, healing from trauma, healthy boundaries, serving others, volunteering in the community, divorce recovery, self-respect as an unmarried, and about my life.  Some of you helped me and my daughters and son; I am grateful to all of you who took a special interest in showing us support…and gave me breaks :D. Some of you showed me unconditional love.  Some confirmed my calling and destiny. Many of you encouraged me and poured into me.

Please understand that I am not complaining, but I was wounded by some of the things that were said or done to me by some of the people I believe genuinely cared for me.  It simply validates the scripture that says, "Faithful are the wounds of a friend," (Proverbs 27:6b) because ALL of it has helped to mold me into the person that I am to day. I will forever treasure the privilege of our paths crossing.  Love you much.

The list is longer than I can recall right now.  But it doesn’t mean I will forget the impact.  When I remember you and how you blessed my life, I am sending blessings back to you through prayer. Hopefully, you will experience me in this space as a manifestation of your obedience to God in my life.  Thank you for sharing and caring.
