I was born in a small town, grew up in a household with two married parents, and have always believed in love. I just wasn’t always sure love would happen to me! I met a man from another small town, and I fell in love as soon as we met. We did get married after many years of dating, and now I have one of the hardest jobs in the world – to act as an help meet to my lord (and try my damnest not to become one of the 52% divorced people in this country). Sounds easy enough, but it’s not as easy as you think. Around every corner lies another reason to give up, to quit.
I try to put God first, but even that is a test. I want to become one of those godly women you read articles and watch movies about – one of those women who pray their families into peace and happy times. But how do I get there and still be the woman I am? I guess being a good wife isn’t about holding on to I am. It’s about letting go and being who God needs me to be for someone else. Such a hard job, so selfless…can I do this??? I guess we will find out!
