I believe everything happens for a reason

Dalton's friend married this weekend. He was the best man and it was a very sweet service. The couple is very young and has a baby on the way. It reminded me so much of how our family started. When I saw that bride round the corner looking so young and full of hope, it reminded me so much of how I probably looked at seventeen getting married. I was so young and so in love....nothing else mattered. When we are young we don't think about anything but the moment. Then as we "grow up" we realize how we change and begin to ask what have I missed. I prayed for her right that minute as I cried my eyes out. I cried because I can so identify with her feelings that day.....a little sad, very happy, very naive, looking forward but not having a clue what is about to hit her. Please pray for her!! Please pray for him!! I truly believe that everything happens for a reason.....God brought us our sweet Dalton. He was truly a gift from God that came very early in my life. I just realize now how fast we had to grow up and that I was growing up with him! I know that God has a plan for this young couple too!
