I don't have the ability to see the future. I didn't know things would turn out like this. Who knew?
If you told me nine years ago that I would be a stay at home, homeschooling, gardening and blogging mom; I would have said, "Yeah Right!".
But that's who I have become. That's who I am. And I am thankful and grateful. You see my future would not have been this way if I hadn't married Mr. Roper. (No, not that Mr. Roper. Although Stanley did have a certain swagger.)
Mr. Roper is my best friend, my greatest confidante, my sweetest love. There is no other for me but him. He knows me better than I know myself, or would care to admit. He has wiped away many tears and created many smiles.
He says that I am capable of doing ANYTHING I wish (except repairing a gas stove), and never says, "No. You can't." He has been strength when I was weak, calm in my chaos, and cheerleader in my corner. I can't ask for more except that I am/become for him what he is for me.
By Hollywood Industry standards, we have been married a long time. But for us regular folks, nine years is just the beginning. I am in it for the long haul baby! We have so much to do, see and feel together. I look forward to it all.
I love you Mr. Roper. You are my Sweetest Love.
