It was a year ago today. And I’m lousy with anniversaries, because I’m just forgetful. But this one is etched in my heart because that wait…oh that wait my friends. Took the lifeblood right on out of me. Times five years.
Maybe you were following along back then, a year ago – when our world stood still for a whole day while we waited and wondered and cried and laughed and rejoiced? If not, you can read it HERE and HERE.

How much she means to us. How much she has changed our world. And we are so much better for knowing her…thank God…so much better. She’s the one.
