The Suburb Woman
The 12th Anniversary
Posted on October 28th, 2015

​Michael and I married 12 years ago today in the primitive Cades Cove, Tennessee Missionary Baptist Church surrounded by the majestic Smoky Mountains in their full fall brilliance. He was the love of my life and the day could not have been more beautiful. 

He opened the world up to me through travel, books and adventure. Michael loved Grace as his own and Samuel completed our sweet family.

When we received the devastating news last December, I could only focus on the great loss that was coming with his decline then death. Everything I believed and every dream I had was dying too. More than holidays and other firsts, I feared today would be the most difficult because it was, "Our Day."

Instead, I will smile and choose to remember the life we shared and all the wonderful memories that will forever be in our hearts. God is good and his mercies and grace do not fail. I picture Michael surrounded today by more natural beauty than he could imagine, climbing every mountain he wishes without tiring, and engaged in endless conversation with his historical and biblical heroes, family and friends.

Michael, you are missed and you are loved. Happy Anniversary.
