Now how did I get here?
What have I done to deserve this?
I have been showered by grace
These are lyrics to a song that describes how I am feeling right now. I have fallen so deeply in love and on June 5th, I got engaged to the most wonderful boy in the whole world for me. He is not the boy of my dreams, or a prince that just swept me off my feet. He is more. More than anything I could have imagined...and how did I get here? I do not know what I did to deserve this, but I am going to do everything I can to show how grateful I am. It almost does not even feel real. I am waiting on someone to pinch me. I keep looking at my hand and saying to myself that I am going to wear this ring for a long long long time. I am going to be married on August 8th and the people that I love the most are all going to be there with me. In the Memphis Tennessee Temple, I am going to be sealed. I am going to stand with all of my family and really be able to feel a little piece of heaven. I really have no idea what lies ahead, and to be completely honest, I am scared to death...but I am going to take it on with faith. I have not yet met one thing that has overcome me. I have always came out on top and guess what? I know that is how my future will be. I am so lucky to have the love of my family and especially my sisters. I seriously would be lost without these beautiful women. They have been such blessings. I cant even say how much they have done for me.
