Do you ever wonder what your life would have been like if you had made just one different choice? If you hadn't gone to the movies with that one boy or if you had woken up earlier and not missed a flight. What if you had picked a different college or career path? Where would you be right now? Would you be as happy as you are? Happier maybe? Would you be experiencing depression or would your life just be mediocre? Sure there are things that would have stayed the same- you'd still have the same parents, maybe even the same group of friends but your life could have been drastically different.
Until recently, I hadn't really thought about what my life would have been like if I had made different choices. I have realized how even the tiniest details were shaped and molded by God to put me exactly where I am today. If I hadn't done one thing or another my life would be worlds different than it is right now. The times that I thought I was in the crappiest of situations, when I thought my world was falling apart, when I literally had no where to go but up, I have realized that God has been with me the whole time. I don't understand his plan or why he has chosen this path for me but I am truly in awe of how blessed I am.
I love the song "Bless the Broken Road" by Rascal Flatts. It truly sums up how I feel about Tyler and our life together and how we may have gone through some tough times and that even though we will still have our fair share of "differences of opinions," we are meant to be together. Even though the world might think that two high school sweethearts aren't supposed to really make it and that we were/are young and naive, those opinions aren't what matter to me... God blessed the broken road that lead us together and that is beautiful.
Happy Valentines Day Tyler. I am so blessed to have you in my life. You have brought me nine wonderful years of happiness and we are just getting started. I wouldn't want to have anyone else on this life journey except for you. I love you to the moon and all the way back. :) Love, Laura
