Today Thomas and I are celebrating a baker's dozen in years of marriage. It doesn't seem like it has been that long at all. We have been through so many ups and downs and I can honestly say, the good outweighs any bad there may have been. I was only 19 years old when I said, "I do" and I have no regrets. Even though I hadn't lived long, I went through enough in my short 19 years to know I was ready. Like most young women, I tried the dating thing. I did things I thought was right but ended up completely wrong.
Looking back, I'm grateful for how I finally let go and decided to let God move on my behalf when it came to a mate. When I met Thomas, I had not too long prior rededicated my life to Christ and pretty much thought I would be single for the rest of my life. And I was okay with it. I had my list of qualities I wanted/needed in a husband and I wasn't going to settle for anyone who didn't exhibit all of them. Then along came Thomas and my world was completely changed!!!
I can now truly thank God for giving me not just what I wanted, but what I needed. I thank Him for the heartaches, heartbreaks, letdowns, losers, liars, cheaters, and no good men who came across my path in some way or another. I thank Him for giving me the wisdom to peep their game and to kick them to the curb. I thank Him because my husband is the exact opposite of all of them. I thank Him for giving me someone who is the perfect example for the man I want the Supremes to marry. I thank Him for these 13 wonderful years so far and I thank Him in advance for the years to come. Q
