Soul Met Mate


It was a normal November evening seven year ago when I received an unusual friend request on my Facebook page. It was from a name I didn’t recognize…at all. But I accepted it because a note attached to the request said that she read my blog, so I figured it couldn’t be such a bad thing. After I accepted the friend request, a message then arrived in my inbox: 

“Glad to see that my friend request wasn’t creepy.   🙂

Yes, I *do* worry about those kinds of things. heh”

My response?


No…it wasn’t creepy at all.


😉 “

And thus began a 90+ message frenzy that was the beginning of something very special.

Nov 24 2008

I wish I could say something like, “Little did I realize that seven years later blah blah blah…” but I can’t. Why? Well, quite frankly, I knew from the very beginning that she was “the one”. I know that sounds crazy, and for a little bit I almost scared Sunshine away…but the fact of the matter is that I’ve known from the very beginning.

From our first couple of messages it was quite clear that there was a connection. As those couple of messages turned into couple DOZEN messages, and the hours turned into days turning into weeks, I absolutely knew that this girl was special. That what we shared wasn’t just a “shooting the breeze” type of friendship or relationship.

Actions speak louder than words, and there are very few words that I can say that can show Sunshine I love her more than I do on a daily basis. I married her because I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her. She makes me feel like I’ve never felt before in my life, and still does on a daily basis.

This woman is, without question, my soulmate.

And I know it’s probably cliche to toss that word around, but so be it. It’s true. As cheesy as it may sound: she completes me. She is the woman I was searching for my entire life. And we’ve battled through quite a bit of diversity over the past few years so we can be together, but I don’t think either one of us would change a single thing.

The obstacles that we’ve had to overcome during the past seven years have made us realize just how great of a thing we have together. Because we’ve fought and scratched and clawed our way to happiness, we don’t take anything that we share for granted.

Not a single moment.

So as we spend this anniversary together, I’d like to reflect back on our years together in pictures. I’m sure you’ll see one constant in these pictures…

…our love.
