Fast forward about 18 months. I got a phone call asking if I could go out for coffee and a talk. A talk we had indeed. We were then courting. Our pastor had already been asked for advice. Parents were being included. Marriage was the goal.
Two months later, I got in Josh's car thinking he was driving me home and instead was brought to see the movie theater marquee. My love got down on his knee to propose on a slushy sidewalk on February 22, 2000.
Five months later. July 15, 2000.
13 years: 4 daughters, 6 houses, 2 dogs, 6 cats, 20 chickens. Several vehicles, family vacations and parties.
The next 13 years? Only God knows!
Happy anniversary, my love!
