Wow, I think I'm still in shock!! It's taken me a week to process everything and to gather my thoughts!
My first thought was "OH MY GOSH, ARE YOU SERIOUS?" and then it was "IS THIS REALLY HAPPENING?" Then when I realized that "yes this is happening" I was instantly so excited and shocked. He really pulled one over on me!! All my life I thought for sure I would be able to figure it out!! But I guess I was wrong.
When I think back to that moment I can't even remember what I said, I must have said yes cuz there is an amazing ring on my finger (haha). What I can remember is him getting down on his knee and saying will you marry me, then, putting the ring on my finger. I can remember my eyes welling up with tears and hugging him. He had to ask me a couple of times because I guess he couldn't hear me say yes!! But I was so surprised by the whole thing I couldn't get the words out!
After that we went to dinner (I couldn't eat) and called every one!! I am so blessed how genuinely excited every one is. We went through a lot last year and to tell you the truth I was a little worried about how this year was going to go. But in thinking about Jer 29:11 I am reminded that no matter what happens, good or bad, that the Lord has a wonderful plan for my life!! I can see that now.
We are praying about the perfect date for our wedding to take place. Possibly Spring of 2010. Thank you all for sharing in our joy and our sadness these last couple of months!!
