Around September, I worked up the courage to tell Dennis how I felt about it and he told me even though he was broken up with his girlfriend, he was going to stay committed to her. He broke my heart. He didn't date, show any interest in anyone - he stayed loyal and committed.
Meanwhile, I dated - but Dennis was still in my heart. We were best friends, we told each other everything and spent a lot of time with each other. Ate many dinners together, went to church together, you name it - we've probably hung out and spent time doing it. We were the best of friends.
One day in 2004 things just changed. It all happened in God's timing. I am so thankful for the man that God picked for me.
Dennis is the best father for Brighton. He is amazing at putting up with my outgoing personality and always talking non-stop. He is patient, calm, and a Godly man that takes care of our family. He is the leader of our house and shows Brighton just the kind of man she should marry. Here are a few pictures of us eight years ago. I thought this was the best day of my life, but turns out - every day I wake up next to him keeps getting better and better. I got my Happily Ever After with him by my side.
