May 7th our family attended a wedding of a young friend of mine. It was a special day for me to see her get married to her best friend. I met her when she was in 7th grade. I was a volunteer in my son's kindergarten class, and I also helped part time in the 7th grade classroom.
We became friends quick, she enjoyed my boys, and I became friends with her family as well.
Time passed and when she was in 11th grade dark clouds loomed. She fell into some sad times and needed special help. I wrote her letters when she was away and she wrote me back, she shared her hurting heart. I prayed and loved her through my letters.
She healed and went on to Cosmetology school.
She went on to do mission work.
She worked hard to pay her way through college to become a teacher.
She climbed and clawed her way out of the dark times.
She had family and friends praying for her.
I was so happy for her last Saturday! She met James, a wonderful dedicated young man.
My prayers are for them both.
I am so proud of her and for James too.
