Life Is As It Was Meant To Be

            I have had a wonderful week. Last wednesday my little sister and her fiancee showed up on my doorstep and surprised me with an impromtu visit. Although I think it had been planned I just didn't know about it. We had a great time, catching up and hanging out. Time with her is leisurly and I love that about her. As the years go the years between us fade. I am so proud of the woman she is and for the woman she wants to be. And Shaun is okay too :). Thanks for bringing her and I hope it is the first of many visits :). They left saturday afternoon and my mom and older sister came in saturday evening. This was Kristina's first visit to my home. It was a blessing to have them both here. Chris and I didn't have the kids this weekend but we got to see them. They were excited when they saw Grandma. Macaela especially. I know it was music to my moms ears to here her say "GRANDMA!!". What can I say it fills my heart as well. :) We spent Sunday exploring and showing off all the wonders that eastern Idaho has to offer. It was cold and windy but we didn't let that stop us. Mom took pictures ofcourse, I was thankful the sun cooperated even though it was a bit cloudy. Yesterday we girls set off for the Falls. Idaho Falls that is... Did some shopping and had lunch. It was just like old times and just what the doctor ordered... SOME GIRL TIME!! (and antique shop and craft stores please) So I feel renewed, restored, and refreshed.
             When I first joined Christian Mingle, I wasn't sure where is was going to lead me. My ultimate goal was to just get out there again. Put my best foot forward and take a chance. I found that dating on the internet wasn't much different than out there in the "real world" but maybe a part of it was safer. I had no idea it would lead me to the love of my life, to children I adore and love as if they were my own, to a world I have never known. In the information that I had to give on my profile I stated that I was not interested in moving any further away than 6 hours from family. I am 5 1/2 hours from Boise. Yes, I miss my family but they are not that far away and the drive is realtivly easy most of the year. This is what I wanted. God has answered my prayer. He blessed me with a kind, caring, passionate, patient, snuggle bug of a man. He knew Chris was my match mate. I knew it too. All the things that I desire for my life are here, and no it's not easy and we struggle, but we have eachother and that is enough. So life is as it was meant to be... TRULLY!!
