My Beloved

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!


  1. Reagan, I am so sad to hear this!! I am praying for you both!!! I wish I was there to do something to help you with the kids. Please tell Wayne I hope he bounces back quickly. Love, lori

  2. My heart dropped when I read your email. Jonathan said he saw your FB but didn't know what it was about. Love and prayers, love and prayers.

    love, Beth
