The Best Decision of My Life...
On May 20, 2000, I walked out my parents' front door and took a step into a new life. I hopped into the old beaten up green Bronco, Nick's first car, and took in a deep breath. I looked in the rearview mirror and saw the dress bag. The enormous white dress and its beautiful train completely covered the back window.
It was hard to believe the day I'd been waiting for my entire "short" life had come. I started the engine, put it in drive and pushed on the gas. As I headed full speed into adulthood...an epiphany.
Des'ree voice came over the speakers and the whole way to the church I sang this song:
I walked down that aisle with full confidence that I was making the best decision of my life.
There wasn't a dry eye in the house...except for mine.
