July 4, 1987 I married my husband Paulo. We had known each other for two years. We were so young. I was 23 and he was 21. We had the support of our parents and 450 friends and family joined us in a "big fat Italian wedding" in my hometown of Fernie BC. We have had a normal life. We have had many blessings and many trials. Now I realize they were all opportunities to grow. In 1998 we joyfully welcomed Paulo jr to the family. In 2011, when I was diagnosed with cancer, it was one of the biggest areas of growth that we had encountered. We were consumed in fear that I was going to die. Then if that wasn't enough my son manifested epilepsy. All I can say is that I am so happy I have God in my life helping me and guiding me to the right teachers to help me heal and thus heal my family.
Five years ago, in 2012, we celebrated twenty five years of marriage, and although we have been tested over the past five years, we made it to our thirtieth wedding anniversary.
Today I had my hand on my heart and my spirit wanted to thank my dear husband for working with me, for loving me enough to grow with me and not without me. Today I celebrate marriage, commitment, growth, healing and I thank GOD for all of it. All the lessons, all the blessings are better when you have LOVE. So today I celebrate LOVE. I love you Paulo. I love you Paulo jr. I love you family. I love you friends. And I love you GOD....you are a part of me. You are a part of us. And I know we are a part of YOU!! Thank you GOD!!
If you would love to meet with me for support with your marriage and learning the "Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman" let me know.
