I'm Soakin' It Up!

I truly believe that Ian was placed in my life when he was so that I would examine things that were being ignored by me in the past. Not that I was this terrible person, but God had things planned for me and my family and needed me to realize the importance of my being here and the obligation I had to let Him guide my thoughts and actions.

Ian has taught me:
  • to respect the fragility of life.
  • to love each new day for what it is.....a "new day".
  • that all women are suckers for a smile.
  • that my parents love me on a different level than I ever knew.
  • that family, through good and bad, is what makes us who we are.
  • and the fact that family should never be taken for granted.
  • that sometimes we convey the truly important lessons to those around us by living silently, not preaching loudly.

Ian has taught me all those things, but I would say that the most important thing he has shown to me would be the fact that God speaks to us in ways that are beyond our knowledge, through people that we don't realize, and through the things we often ignore. This has been (and continues to be) a lesson in the nature of my creator and the reason I am here.
