Nine Years Ago

I have written about this day before here and here.  It's a day way back in 2002 that I will never forget.  Every February 15th that passes is a reminder of how my life changed that day...with a last minute decision to buy a plane ticket only weeks before, to open my heart to possibilities, and to let go of any fear and just go for it. 

That day still runs through my head...the weekend, I can still remember clearly.  A lot has changed and happened in these past nine years...but somethings remain the same: I still get weak in the knees when I look at him across a crowded room, he can still make me laugh just like he did on our first weekend together, and when we are apart my heart aches to be with him.

Today is not just any other day in my world.  It's a day that changed my life forever and until my last breath, it will be a day that I celebrate and thank God for.
