An Entire Year.....

A lot can happen in a year. No one knows this better than I do. In the course of years past I've lost loved ones, gained myself, lost a marriage, watched my children grow. I cried and laughed and loved and grieved. Who hasn't, right? Some of us more than others.

But more has happened to me in this past year than I can remember in any other. I went from married to the dreaded, "Divorced"...and I found love. Something different than I'd even known before.

Today it's been a year since I met MM. Isn't that just amazing? Some days it feels like it's been a lifetime, and some days no more than a minute. In him I found something I didn't even know I craved. Acceptance. Love. Strength.

When I look to the future I see him. I see us together. Laughing and teasing and being happy. For that I'm thankful. He's always passionate and loving and...he's perfect for me. I'm very blessed to know him, to be with him, to love him.

I can't predict what will happen in the following years, but I know with him by my side I can weather any storm, fight any battle, win any war.

It hasn't always been easy. We've had rough spots just like any other couple, though ours haven't been as rough as many others. But we've endured. And it's my hope that we'll continue to endure.

Celebrate with me today, will you? I managed to make it an entire year without shooting him. That really says something, doesn't it?

You're a lucky woman! Again I ask...where's my MM? Argh!!!

BTW the song I posted on my site is perfect for you and MM then...check it out...although I don't know how good your Spanish is (song is in Spanish and I don't even know what it all means, but it's beautiful!).

*sniffle* I'm so happy for you Holly girl. And I'm glad you and MM found each other.

You've been through so much in the last year and it amazes me to see your strength grow as you move forward.

I'm so thankful that MM came into your life and has brought you the things you've craved but didn't know you needed.

Gosh, it feels like just the other day you were telling us that your mama was trying to set you up with MM. I can't believe that was a year ago!

A lot has happened in the last year..and look at you now. You're actually able to say the L word without breaking out. *wink* So lets see if we can work on the M word now, huh? *snicker*
Love you!

Isabel said...

awwww, it's been a year already. I remember reading the email about your first date. *sniff*

I'm glad you guys found each other.

Ooooh Congrats Holly!!! You deserve to be happy. And I'm glad you are. :P

(No, I'm not giving you Max as an anniversary present.)

Kelley said...

In which case you met MM on my birthday.

My real initials are MM.

Co-incidence or what ?

And - yes : quite a lot can change in a year. It has for me as well.

PS One day (if you're really unlucky) I'll tell you what I was doing on October 8th last year at about the same time you were meeting your MM for the first time.
To say that I was celebrating my birthday would be an understatement !

Congratulations by the way - glad you're happy.

Congratulations! This is such a wonderfully sweet post.

Have a wonderful anniversary!

Devonna said...

Very beautiful, Holly. Enjoy your day with MM. Any special plans?

Happy Anniversary you two!

Holly said...

Thanks all! We didn't really do anything special. MM had to work and My Favorite Marine is visiting (that's another post for later) so I just went to MM's house last night and hung out with him. We watched a movie and then went to bed early (*wink,wink*).

I've been very blessed this last year. Thank you all so much for your kind words.

If I find another like MM, you'll be the first to know. :D

That quote is beautiful!

Hmm...that's very interesting. I think we were meant to meet, how about you? And I'm definitely curious now. I look forward to hearing about it.

That's just wrong! Max WANTS to come live with me. He told me so.

Dylan said...

Dude, it's been a year already? Damn, time flies, huh? Gosh, Happy First Day you met MM, Holls...awww, I remember getting yelled at because I was watching Prison Break and not listening to your first meeting with a potential hottie boyfriend. And now he IS your hottie boyfriend, too cute!

Lori said...

Congrats - it's wonderful to find that special someone who makes you feel like the most precious thing on earth.

Rosie said...

There is nothing sweeter or more dear than finding the right person to share your life with...many congratulations Holly.

Holly said...

LOL...I remember that, Dee. You're so mean to abandon me for Prison Break. *sigh*

Thanks, it's been an amazing adventure, that's for sure.

THANKS! It's been very sweet and very dear. ;)

Jazz said...

Holy crap has it been that long already??? It's time for a ring! Have MM call me. LMAO!!!

Holly said...

Jazz, I just threw up a little in my mouth. NO RINGS! This girl...
