you complete me…

When i was a teenager i had stars in my eyes and a stars in my heart.  I dreamed of a day when my knight in shining armour, rose in hand, wearing a tuxedo would arrive to sing to me as i sat by my window overlooking the manicured gardens and fountain.  Instead reality was broken relationships that chipped away at my dreams and self-esteem.

I moved to Sydney when i was 21, to find work and escape a dysfunctional relationship that for years i hadn’t been able to make a clean break from… and there i found my knight.  I remember the very first glimpse I had of Brad,  I was a check out chick at Franklin’s in Hornsby; it was my first real job and my very first day on the job.  As I walked into the store I glanced to my left and saw this really cute guy in a collared shirt and brightly coloured tie at a till.  At first glance and my heart went pitter, patter.  He tried to chat me up that first day and i floated home from work feeling like my heart had come out of winter into spring time.

So this last week the man who has made my life into a permanent springtime celebrates his birthday, so happy birthday to the one i love, you complete me.  I am so blessed to find a man who allows God to be first in his life which flows out as: a love that overflows to all; strength of character, who treats me and our girls with honour, generosity and integrity, like we are ladies of great worth; who takes our son and shows him how to be a man.

Brad you are my joy bringer!

    How great is that photo of the “younger you two”. Thanks for sharing your love journey with us. I’ll never forget the picture of the two of you sitting on a chair at Don and Gillian’s. You were feeding Natalia and Brad was sitting beside you with his arm around you – proudly sharing the moment with his two girls – just perfect. My idea of real love!!! You were truly blessed to find it!!!
