Welp. Sir Robert (side story: when Rob and I were engaged, one of his roommates would always call us Sir Robert the Great and Lady Katherine... I thought it was cute) and I have successfully made it to one year of marriage! We weren't able to celebrate this weekend due to finals and such, but Friday we are heading to Salt Lake for a Jazz game! SO excited to get away for the weekend.
Marriage has been such a blessing in my life. I have learned so much and I know that my Heavenly Father placed Rob into my life for all the right reasons. Before we started dating, Rob and I were just friends. I remember one Sunday I drove to the Rexburg temple. I was feeling extremely lonely and unwanted. I remember parking my car and staring at the beauty to which the temple holds. I started to pray and I remember crying and asking God to send me someone who wanted me around. I wasn't asking for a boyfriend, just someone, anyone who needed me just as much as I needed them. I pleaded with God to take the pain of loneliness away from me.
A couple days later, Rob and I started dating. It kind of happened out of no where. One day we were just friends, then all the sudden we were a couple. A lot of people had opinions about that, and I just flat out didn't care. My Heavenly Father answered my prayers and gave me what I wanted: someone to love and someone to love me right back. I know that God lives and hears our prayers. Sometimes he doesn't answer them until we are about to break but I know that he hears us and will answer his children if we just ask.
I think of that moment at the temple by myself, sitting in a car crying, and pleading with my Father above as one of the biggest blessings in my life. A few months after that, I was able to enter the doors of that holy place and marry my best friend. If it wasn't for a prayer and a loving Heavenly Father who knew what I needed, I just wonder where I would be.
Happy one year (yesterday), my love. I cherish you more than life.
