Today, 33 years ago, my best friend was born! It was on a Thursday, June 13, 1985 a 7 lb 6 oz black headed little boy came into the world. He had so much hair that the nurses wanted to put a bow in it because none of the other girls that were there had hair like him! Of course his dad said NO!!!
He grew up like most boys do running all through the woods, fishing, hunting, & riding 4 wheelers!!! His family liked to take their campers across the country and when people would ask him where he was from he would tell them “I’m from Skyline, Alabama, no bigger than a sweet tater” in his best country voice, lol.
He gave his life to the Lord when he was 12 and soon after started singing with friends of his in a group. They would go around to different churches and even at their school and sing.
I knew Nathan for years but didn’t really like him as a boyfriend. I thought he was a player and he thought I was a brat!!! When he was 16 & I was 15 we started noticing each other, but we didn’t start dating then. One night we had gone to a gospel singing. I was supposed to be there with someone else but I was hoping he would be there.....he came and when he found out I’d broken up with my boyfriend he asked for my number and the rest was history!!
We got married in July 2003 in the church that I attended my whole life with my pastor officiating our ceremony. His pastor said the prayer.
We have had a wonderful 16 years together, lots of ups & downs but you have to have the downs to appreciate the good!
I’m so thankful for our life together. We have 3 beautiful girls that sometimes act just like him, but sometimes they are just like me.
He is a wonderful worker and provider for our family. He has such a willing heart, he is always helping people in need, and is always willing to take a loss on something to make sure someone else is done right. He has a sweet kind soul and I am thankful to call him mine.
I hope you have a wonderful day!!! And here is to many more!!! I love you with all my heart.
