After every storm

Remember after most storms in life you are given a rainbow. My life was not so much a storm as a long rain shower. I decided early on I would rather be alone for the right reasons than with someone for the wrong ones. That left me with many solo years. I met my husband when I was 42 and we married at 45. Adopted our Little girl this past year…she is 7. I spent my 20’s and 30’s watching everyone in the world…or so it seemed…get married or celebrate having a baby. I knew God had different plans and that was ok. Enter Katy who introduced me to my husband. A blind date that lead to the altar. As I look back on my LONG rain shower I realize it was not a storm but a time to prepare, to grow and to wait. I was given a giant rainbow in my life. The treasure at the end of that rainbow is Husband and Little Girl. I would not trade either for anything nor the journey it took to find them!

The loves of my life!  The reason I am.  Love you both!!!
