On March 20, 2008 at approximately 11:45 a.m. I married my best friend and love of my life. It’s been a difficult, seven year journey for us, mostly because we live on separate continents. But we are deeply in love and committed to each other, so the wait has definitely been worth it.
Now that the immigration process begins, so does the next wait.
Four hours ago, I left Mike at the airport. It was incredibly sad and painful for us both. I miss him so much…
An old country song keeps playing in my head. This is the chorus:
Shining in the sunlight
Headed somewhere in flight
They’re taking you away
And leaving me lonely
Slowly fading out of sight
Now I’ll wait for the silver wings to bring you back, Baby!
I love you with all that I am and all that I have!
