Celebrating Continues...Happy Anniversary Remington Man!


Two Full Years and I loved every minute! I think from the moment we said, "I Do" time sped up.  Sometimes I wonder when do you get a moment to breathe and savor the goodness.  Life just goes on.  


For those who are curious...  The Remington Man and I met when I was in fourth grade he was in first.  I had just moved to Oklahoma from Georgia and my family was looking for a new church to belong to and make some friends since we didn't know a soul out here.  I was just thankful we weren't living in a tepee!  We found a great church just down the street and life happened.  Our parents were good friends and he was always around not that I really noticed.  When you are 16 the last thing you "notice" is a 13 year old boy.  But when you are 28 and have traveled and lived all over the world; a 25 year old grown up man is intriguing.  Especially when you know where his roots are planted and that he was quite handsome even!   Eight months later while out fishing he asked me to spend the rest of my life with him and 7 1/2 months later we said, "I do"! 


And that is when life went into fast forward...three months later we were pregnant and just a few days short of our first anniversary I gave birth to our little one.  Life is good!


“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”  Jeremiah 29:11


There are times that I found myself wondering if that would be true for me too.  Like the Garth Brooks song I am very thankful for unanswered prayers...God's plan was better!

  10. I think it is true - that knowing someone's "roots" increases their attractiveness. Great tale.
