Blog Dare Day 17 - The first time I saw...

When my first husband and I divorced, I was left the single mom of a toddler, carrying a full load of debt, and feeling all alone in the world.  My daughter and I moved in with my parents, and I devoted every moment of my life to my daughter.  I had no interest in dating, and was certainly not looking for a husband.  Just when I wasn't looking, the Lord placed my soul mate into my life.

My soul mate(Chefy) lived in Washington State and I lived in NC.  We were far apart, yet we became so connected, it was crazy.  On his second visit to NC, I decided to introduce him to my daughter.  We were a package deal, and she was THE factor in whether I would continue with him, or go it my own way.  The first night they met, she crawled up in his lap and "read" to him, and she stole his sandwich when he got up.  Those were good signs!  The next day, we went to the beach, and while at the pool, my daughter was standing on the side of the pool and she cried out, "Catch me Daddy!" and she leaped right into Chefy's arms and hugged him.  The look on both of their faces was priceless!  I knew from that moment that we were meant to be a family.  She found her daddy, I found a hubby and soul mate, and the three of us became a family!
