Every year I forget the "anniversary" of our engagement. It's a reversal of the norm, but Colby never lets a year slip by without celebrating it in a small way. Last night he played the song for me again. The words seemed especially impactful at this leg of the journey:
So many bridges we've crossedSo many miles we've walkedHe's seen us through this farI know wherever you areI want to be there to sayYou'll make it through another dayI want to hold you so you know I'll never turn awayHis love will see us throughSo I am patiently waiting
Today has been the most mentally stressful day that we have had since we've been here. We were told the decision would be made by today, and after a morning and afternoon of butterflies and pacing the house, we received the news that...the decision has not yet been made. The only thing we can do is wait. I am so thankful for how much Colby and I have grown together these past 8 months. God has really done a work in our marriage these past 7 1/2 years to make us a team. Going to training together, language school together, the gym together...everywhere together has been an adjustment, but a huge blessing. There is no one else in the world I would rather be on a tiny lava rock in the middle of the North Atlantic with.
