Once upon a time............

I used to love to read fairy tales. Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel. What little girl doesn't dream of "happily ever after"?

....... Once upon a time, in a land far away, there lived a little girl who had a dream. It was a big dream, because she did not know that dreams could come true. She lived in a big city, where lots of people lived, but felt all alone. She had a sweet mother, who worked hard and loved the little girl very much.

One day the Mother decided to move back to her home town. So the little girl and her Mother moved to a place of tropical paradise. A small town, very different than where she lived before.  The little girl went to school and worked to help her Mother.

Then came a day when she met a handsome young Prince. At first it was a road paved with gravel and stone. There were highs and lows, up and downs.

The little girl did not have an earthly father to talk to, so she talked with her Heavenly Father. It was a troublesome time for the little girl, as she came to this crossroad. But she asked her Father to help her. She had such a peace knowing that He would direct her towards the right path.

The handsome young Prince was also at a crossroad. But in time they both came to understand the meaning of

Do fairy tales come true?? Sometimes maybe they do. I do know that in the providence of a loving God, I met a very special man who has been the light of my life. He has cared for me, and loved me, even when I was unlovely. We've walked together through the good times and the not so good. I've learned that genuine love has no expectations from those who are loved. Love is giving, not getting.  And after all these many years, our love has grown.  Stronger. Deeper.  With each passing year.

Happy Anniversary honey.  You will ALWAYS be my Knight in shining armour.
