I was looking at this picture and thought to myself, this is 2 years old! We went to the fair with Anthony's brother and sis-in-law. I look at it and remember how happy I was. I was newly re-active in the church, I was taking temple prep classes, and I found the love of my life. It is amazing how "timing" is such a huge factor in our lives. I KNOW I wasn't meant to meet Anthony until the time I did. Both he and I had to go through all of our drama to better prepare us for each other. Had we not had really crap relationships we would not have know what we wanted in a spouse, nor would we have been ready to marry. In fact, because my first marriage was insanely dangerous to my mental health I was set on the idea to never marry again. A month after Anthony and I met, I knew that he was the one, however I wanted to wait a year before we married. I was so freaked out with the fast pace of our relationship, it took Anthony getting into a motorcycle accident and nearly dieing to get me on board. He broke two bones in his back while driving on the 91 freeway in the fast lane. The doctors said that he should have been hit by a following car and died. Since he wasn't hit, and broke 2 bones, the doctors then said that he should be paralyzed. Either way you look at it, it was a miracle that he was "okay". I remember being mad at him for getting into the accident because we had plans to do something fun that day and he ruined them. It wasn't until the next day that I realized that I almost lost him....and that is when it happened....I was ready to make things eternal so I could "claim" him in the hereafter. I never looked back, only forward. And here we are married, happy, and sealed. His timing is crazy and we as mortals will never understand his reasons. I am so thankful for all the crap I went through because I know it prepared me to be a wife to Anthony. Enough rambling for a Tuesday night.... GO VOTE! Oh and motorcycles suck!!!!
