My story started 31 years ago. 31 years ago I met the man I knew that my mom had been praying for.
We met through mutual friends officially but this man had an impact on my life a few years prior when my father passed away. As I stood on the hill
saying my final goodbyes to my dad I saw a man in a blue suit parked down the hill and standing beside his car.
My eyes were on this man, not because he was handsome or anything romantic, but because he kept my attention from what was going on around
me. I watched him the whole service as to keep my composure and not fall apart.
I did not know this man, had seen him a time or 2 but had no idea who he really was. I told my mom about him and we both agreed he was an angel sent by God to help me cope
with the hardest day of my life.
2 years later I was formally introduced to Greg by a friend and I didnt share with him the events of that day but knew that someday he would be my husband. Greg and I met in March, had our first alone date in June and
after just 2 weeks he proposed and we were married in October 1981.
Our vow renewal will take place on our 31st wedding anniversary at sunset and it means the world to me that we can share this day after all these years.
Greg Rood, I loved you yesterday,
today and every tomorrow we have together!
