Our Story

Billy and I met almost 5 months ago on March 9, 2008. We both created a profile on LDSSingles.com about the same time. Billy sent me an IM with just a "Hi". I sent one back with just a "Hi". We then chatted online for quite sometime that day. He wanted to meet me but I said not until I can talk to you over the phone and then only in a very public place. I was very much afraid to meet him (or anyone) in person. Billy, however, was very eager to meet me and gave me his phone number. I called him and we had a phone conversation that lasted over 6 hours. After talking to him and feeling a little more comfortable I agreed to meet him a week later at temple square. However, the next day on Sunday, March 9th he asked if he could please take me to dinner. I only had a very limited amount of time because I was working nights at KraftMaid at that time and had to be to work at 8:30 and it was already 5:00 and he still had to drive down from Clearfield. I agreed to meet him at Chili's at 6:00.
Wow! What a life changing experience that meeting was! We were both very nervous but there was this HUGE instant connection between us. It was like our spirits or souls were reconnecting with each other, like we had known each other before in the pre-existence. It was an awesome and a very spiritual experience for both of us as well as a little frightening. We had dinner and talked, he held my hand and when it was time to part ways we had a good bye kiss and **WOW** that was like something we both have never experienced before. We both knew at that time that we were meant to be together. But this is something we kept to ourselves for a while longer.
We have been together ever since. Both of our lives have been changed dramatically but for the good. We are very happy and very much in love with each other. We eagerly await the moment when we can be united in marriage in this life and in the next. This should be happening very soon (we hope). We feel very blessed that we have found each other, but we also wonder why we had to wait so long, why so many years had to go by without the other in our lives.
I am so blessed to have Billy in my life. He has made me the happiest woman in the whole world. He truly loves me and treats me like a Queen. He holds every quality in a man that I prayed to Heavenly Father I would find. It was like Heavenly Father knew my hearts desires and hand picked Billy just for me and placed him in my path just at the right time when I needed him the most. It has been a long, painful and unhappy road for me until now. Out of the darkness I am finally seeing the light. Billy is my light, my love, my next breath, my everything.
I Love You so very much Babe! Thanks for always showing me your love and for caring about me enough to take care of me and my kids even when it hasn't been your responsibility to do so. I love you with all my heart and soul and look forward to a long and happy life with you.
