Cannonball

It shouldn't shock me that he's been in love before. And it doesn't.

I just know (maybe not on the same level that he does), what it's like to have your heart tell you one thing, and the Lord to tell you something else. And I know it took me over a year to get over that, and I wasn't anywhere close to being married. At least I don't think. So knowing that something as monumental as that happened less than six months ago...just makes me wonder I guess.

I'm not worried, and I'm not freaking out. I'm just processing all of that through my brain.

Normally, in this sort of situation, I'd be scared. I'm terrified of being vulnerable. But I'm not scared. I trust him. That's big. And it feels so good to say.

Lauren- I think you are bigging to grow up . . . I think the best thing is that you are learning to relax, to enjoy getting to know each other and listening to the Spirit as you go. It will all work out according to His plan . . .
luv ya!

Your mom is right - slow and easy and like the song says "getting to know you" is the way it works. I knew the minute I met the Grampie Man (and couldn't imagine him being a grampie or me being a grammie at that point - LOL) that he was the one, but it took quite a while to really confirm that and for both of us to be sure it was right - but it was and it's been a wonderful ride for both of us. If Dan is the man, that is great, if he isn't, it'll be alright and life will still be beautiful. And a great adventure...no big rush, right??? (()):** (bet you didn't know I knew how to do hugs and kisses, did you?)

If it's a right thing, then the details work themselves out.
