A day at Heber Springs my junior year of college changed the course of my life.
There's not any way to accurately and completely explain the next 7 years of our life together...as friends, as boyfriend-girlfriend, fiancees, husband-wife, daddy-mama, lovers, and partners in our ministry.
I can just take you through the moments, some significant, some seemingly insignificant that have made my life so much better and happy because of this bright blue-eyed woman. Here are just a few:
-The Big Ragoo and laser tag.
-A freezing cold fountain.
-Talks down at B Rock.
-Letters at graduation.
-A trip to Dallas.
-Meeting at the bookstore.
-"Why not now?"
-Picking out Belle.
-Candles and Egg Nog.
-Picking up Scout.
-Making a familiar house a home.
-The long drought.
-Dancing on the back porch.
-The blue-eyed little girl arrives.
-Dr. Elizabeth Ann Null Clark
-The move to KC.
-A cruise that saved a marriage.
-Losing a baby.
-Sitting on the floor singing with our daughter.
-Holding hands realizing we made it through the hard times.
-The birth of another blue-eyed girl.
-A move to Nashville.
-A cancer diagnosis.
-The hard questions.
-Dancing in the hallway.
-Holding hands realizing everything's gonna be alright.
It's been hard at times, but we're still here....together. And as I sit here with our little girls (one singing, one smiling) I am moved to tears that Liz, the best person I know, let it be me who was with her through it all. The good and the bad.
Eternity is not long enough to be with her.
I love you, Liz.
