It will not come as any surprise to my closest friends that I love Taylor Swift (Don't even get me started on what Kanye did to her at the VMA's)!!! So, last night I heard a new song of hers..."Two is Better Than One." Well it got me thinking... I have two amazing examples of forever love in my family. My Grandparents...Grandma Mary & Papa LD, and Grandma Judy & Papa Dean!! Combined they have been married for 100 years!!! That's right, both sets celebrate their 50Th anniversaries this year. AMAZING!!!! The best part is that they are still IN LOVE with each other. Last December my Grandma Mary had a massive Stroke. It was beyond horrible. The worst/best part was seeing my Papa L.D. at the hospital with her. He was completely beside himself at the thought of losing her. I was sobbing as I watched him walk beside her as the doctors were wheeling her into surgery. He was holding her hand and just kept telling her, "I love you, I don't know what I'll do if I lose you..." Watching his range of emotions that night changed something in me. Over the next few weeks, I had to make some extremely difficult decisions to say the least. I realized that the person you choose, and who chooses you, is everything!!! I'm so glad Taylor and I found our way back to each other (I'll save that blog post for another time). Marrying Taylor is the best thing I have ever done in my life. He makes me want to be a better person, he challenges me, he believes in me, even when I don't believe in myself. He loves me, and I love him!!!!! He is perfect for me. Together we are whole. He is the person I see myself facing life's challenges with. He's the person I see myself holding hands with when I'm old and Gray!!! Two is definitely better that one!!!!!
Papa L.D. and Grandma Mary
LOVE YOU FOREVER!!!!!
