The Day Before You

"Sunshine, On a Cloudy Day." After a homegoing service for a lon"Sunshine, On a Cloudy Day." After a homegoing service for a lon So many places I could begin to tell you about this man, but there are so many Im not sure where to start. So I'll start here....

In the middle of all my brokeness and the nights of crying myself to sleep, when I thought love was lost and I would never know what it felt like to be loved completely, he came along...

Every girl dreams as a child of the man she will end up with. Of course, movies and story books always make him out to be the prince who rescues the fair maiden in distress, the lady who is being held captive or the one who cries out in song wishing for "dreams to come true"

I had lost all belief in my fairy tale ending, thinking I would just have to suck it up and settle for some nut case wearing tin foil for shining armor....I was wrong. This man came into my life and truly did rescue me. Night after night, day after dayand when I was grieving over a broken heart, he was there. Even through his own heartache he took the time to be there for me, and every time rescued me from my own tears that I shed so many nights before him. When I was feeling like I didnt amount to anything, he made me feel like I was the most important person in the world. When I stopped dreaming, he gave me a reason to not only dream but dream bigger than any dreams I could ever imagine. The respect, love, and care he showed me, made me realize that I am worthy of being loved...(hang on, I need to grab a tissue)....


The days I felt like everything was going wrong and I was drowning and being held underwater, he tossed me the life ring. By quoting scripture after scripture, doing something silly to make me laugh or getting fired up and being very firm with me refusing to let me play "victim" of my circumstances. I remember thinking "who does he think he is" and voiced it to him once, as he came back at me with "I'm someone who cares". He's been my best friend and even though neither of us know where this journey is going to take us, we are enjoying where we are at.  He's been there through everything, and one thing I am certain of, is that no matter where we end up, I never want to wake up to a world where he doesn't exist and I never want to take his friendship, love and loyalty for granted. Gene, you are my "Prince", my hero and even though all this seems so crazy and there are many miles between us, the distance means so little when someone means so much. You mean everything to me, and I thank God every day for your place in my life. I never want to go back to ........"the day before you"

"Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses." Ann Landers
