Thoughts on Thursday~Happy Birthday to My Best Friend


Today's thoughts are focused on my best friend, my husband of almost 29 years.  I can't imagine life without you.

30 years ago, I quit nursing school to the dismay of most that knew me.  In the meantime, I took a job as a receptionist for the insurance company my dad was working for at the time.  That position eventually led to another, but not before you stepped off the elevator one day for an interview.

I like to think of it as God intervening.  His plans were greater than mine.  Had I stayed in school, I would not have been the one to greet you that day.  The day God gifted me with my soul mate, the person whom I would share the rest of my life with, the person who would be the best father in the world to my children, the person who would become my best friend for life.

Sometimes we think we have life all planned out. But, the honest truth is He has already set in motion plans for each of us, and sometimes they differ from our plans.

There is not a day that goes by that I am not thankful for His intervention, and for the soul mate he placed in my life.

Happy Birthday to my one and only...God truly blessed me the day I met you.

Sweet! It was definitely meant to be...but maybe nursing school is still meant to be, too? The world can always use more kind and caring people to be nurses and it's never to late to learn something new~!
