Today was one of those days that you fear will come. I got the call from Wayne's work that he had suffered a stroke and was being taken by ambulance to the hospital. I dreaded walking into that ER room. I was afraid of what was on the other side of that curtain. Can you guess what I saw? The most beautiful lop-sided smile! If you know my Wayne, you know that he is known for his broad friendly smile. That's the smile I fell in love with fourteen years ago. I love this man.
My heart is in a tough place tonight. I am so grateful and yet fearful of the unknown. The stroke has affected his speech. The stroke will from this point forward affect our lives. This is our caution flag. The doctor told Wayne that it's time to slow down. There is nothing in this world more precious to me than this man. He is my joy. He is my beloved.
God is good!
