First of all, I want to thank God for bringing the most wonderful man into my life. Eric and I first started chatting on Migente in December of 2001. I was up late one night at my best friend's house and I decided to do a search for a Christian pen pal. Eric's profile was the second one I saw that night and when I saw his picture, it was like something jumped out of the screen and into my heart and I knew that this was going to be the man I would marry.
We began chatting as friends first because I lived in NY (born and raised) and he was from Chicago. I was hesitant at first to get involved in a long distance relationship and everyone I knew thought I was crazy, but God had a plan for us. We talked for about a month online before I finally gave him my number. The first night we talked on the phone, I fell in love with him. We talked for about 5 hours that first night and needless to say that we both had pretty high phone bills for a while.
We finally decided to meet in person and Eric cancelled a trip to Puerto Rico with his friends to come out to NY in February of 2002. That was the best weekend of my life. We were inseperable and we felt like we had known each other forever. The following month in March, I flew out to Chicago with my best friend and had the most awesome time and I knew that Eric was the one.
Shortly thereafter we professed our love for each and have been together ever since. Its been a long hard road as our relationship was a long distance one for over 2 years. I finally got up the courage to move from NY to Chicago in August of 2004.
Eric proposed to me on Christmas day 2005 and we were married less than two months later on February 18th, 2006. He is my best friend, my confidant and the love of my life. And the best part is that we are both Christians and can serve God together. Thank you Migente and thank you Lord for the gift you have given me! I love you baby!
