At this moment on the 21st of August, 2010, I was on a charter boat in Virginia Beach with my company. Last year was the company's 25th anniversary, and to celebrate, we went on a 4 hour fishing trip. I got totally burnt, touched some really cool (but gross) stuff, and had an awesome time! (There's definitely a reason the croaker got it' name...and did you know the gills can tear you up?!)
I spotted a guy sitting by himself in a booth, and after consultation with Valeri, decided to see if he would take pity on me and my feet and let me sit at his booth. He did...
I met my Josiah one year ago today. Had I known how important that man was going to be in my life and the lives of my children, I would have soaked up every word we said and everything he did. I remember tidbits, but I wish I could remember it all.
What I remember is the feeling I had that this guy was different from the rest...and if I left without exchanging contact information, I would deeply regret it. The Lord truly works in mysterious ways.
It has been a fantastic year Josiah, and I look forward to many more. I love you more than I can say.

On this day last year....
Alissa Coburn is a lover of Jesus, the wife of her best friend, and of the mother of 6 beautiful children...whom she adores, but make her question her sanity daily. She also aspires to write and speak professionally, which she feels very deeply is her calling.
