So I have done my catch up posts (with lots of adoreable kiddo pics) and now I wanna dedicate a post to the man I love. I was blown away in Vegas when he proposed because looking back at this time last year I would never have believed that the Lord would bless me in so many ways. I have grown so much since my divorce and I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we have to go through trials and tribulations so that we can appreciate the good things when they finally come (and they DO come) I couldnt imagine that I would be so blessed to have someone like Derek in my life much less someone who I get to spend the rest of my life with. He has given me so much joy and I NOW know what it means to be LOVED (by someone other than your parents obviously) He is kind, smart, loyal, loving, funny (not at someone elses expense which is important), respectful but most of all he loves me AND Daley with his whole heart. He told me from the beginning that he had a lot of love to give and I believe him. He has shown me more respect, grace and love than any other man I have known in my life and I know that it was no mistake that he showed up in my life when I least expected it. You know how they say "the Lord works in mysterious ways" well Amen to that. I could bore you with lots of details about things in our lives that have come to be at just the right time but I wont.....just know he is the one for me and I know he is a blessing from God!!!
