You've Got A Friend In Me
Over the years JP and I have maintained our friendship, it is a friendship I can't imagine my life without. When I get married in three months she will be my matron of honor, not just because she is the coolest person I know, but because she helped me recognize my husband. Dustin is an amazing man, and I recognized in him things I had become familier with because of JP. I saw kindness, quiet strength, tenderness and faith. I grew up in a life that didn't have many of these things. I wouldn't have known how wonderful I could have it if JP hadn't shown me.
I honestly believe that people are placed in our lives so we learn something. I am horrible when it comes to choosing partners for relationships. I have had bad boyfriend after bad boyfriend, men who have thwarted my spiritual growth at every oppertunity. But I wouldn't change a single one of those experiances because they made Dustin stand out like a lighthouse. My future husband glows with love, with the Spirit, and with sheer joy. If it hadn't had been for the people who have flowed in and out of my life over the last 27 years I would never have recognized him. I would never have been able to see him. I'm so glad for the people, for the relationships, that have shaped me and moulded me for this time in my life.
