I have a temple recommend. I have a calling. I have this burning understanding of Christ's love for me and my role as a daughter of God. I am home. I am finally back to who I know I'm supposed to be. I am Leslie and I am happy.
Colton and I are still dating. Things are really, really good with him. He's sweet and funny and laid back. I enjoy my time with him so much. I can't believe I've been so blessed to spend my time with such a wonderful man.
The best thing about our relationship is this: we aren't worrying about an end goal. We both know that marriage is the reason we're dating. We both know that eventually we want marriage, even if it's not with each other. Instead of worrying about whether or not we're going to get married or if we're right for each other, we've simply been reveling in what we have. We give each other the space we need, yet we talk often and have a great time going on dates. We talk about the future. We share secrets. We discuss our hopes and dreams. We cuddle. Last weekend we were spooning on my couch and he said quietly, almost to himself, "It's kind of funny, you fit perfectly."
I can testify that blessings come when you're working hard to be good. When you're focusing on the right things and putting your heart in the right place, blessings come. Colton is my blessing. He is wonderful.
I am so happy.
