I am back in the swing of work and wondering where did august go? It's now September, my favorite month. It's the month I was born. It's the first month of Fall, my favorite season. "Septem" means 7 in latin, and I was born on the 7th day of September (I think that is pretty cool). And it's now the month before our wedding. Usually I am really looking foward to September arriving, yet this year I can't help but long for October. October 16th to be exact. I still can't help but be amazed every single day how great God is! How thankful I am He has brought Cameron into my life, a man whom continues to lead me, continues to love me, no matter how crazy or stressed I get, still has this huge smile on his face and says "soon". Soon we will actually be living in the same city. Soon we will see each other everyday. Soon we can stop having static phone conversations that drive us both crazy. Soon I will be able to give him a big hug and kiss before he goes to class and he will be there for me after a long hard day at work. "Soon", he says. Soon we will be getting married!!! SOON.
Our engagement has been pretty straining on our relationship, emotionally, physiclly, spiritually. Will "strain" go away once we get married...probably not. There are always new trials and tribulations that enter into life. But as we continue to live life it becomes so evident to me that we can make our life as simple or complicated as we want it to be. I choose the simple life. Cameron has this t-shirt that has a picture of a guitar with only one guitar string and reads "live simply". A guitar with one string is a lot easier to play than a guitar with six strings. It probably won't sound as pretty, or attract a lot of attention. It won't make the hall of fame, or even earn a passerbyers spare change. But what a simple life it leads. SIMPLE.
September, you're a great month. As eager as I am for SOON to come, may I still enjoy you this year as I always do.
