Dedicated to the love of my life Dave

Today is Friday at 7:15 pm.  I’m taking a break from moving.  We moved 125 boxes and in 24 hours we were done…worked at the speed of lightning…I am so thankful to be in a bigger place now…

I am so inspired to write this in the midst of the crazy move.  A bigger place…yeah a pantry…a home office…a nest…and I can’t wait to live the rest of my life.  Even amidst the possibility of a major surgery December 13th that would definitely challenge me to grow.  But I wanted to take this time to thank the pillar, my strength, my love, Dave.  We have been together 11 years exactly today and I just want to thank you for everything you have given me in these beautiful eleven years.  We cried together, we laughed together, every day is a new adventure by your side.  We have changed together…from a disgruntled police officer and a boring city employee to an incredible adventurous romantic…and a radiant beautiful soul…walking side by side towards the rainbow…weathering the storm.

I still remember when the doctor gave me the diagnosis or label whatever we want to call it, and you turned purple and blue – we laugh at that moment now…because you felt the diagnosis more for me than I did for myself – especially when the doctor showed us the xrays of someone who had the same diagnosis and had a quarter of her jaw removed because of this tumor called ameloblastoma.  Amelo- what?  All we knew is that our life would change.

But whatever would happen, we would still laugh, we would still cry.  We would still celebrate.  Because God sent me this challenge when I’m most inspired.  When I’m at my strongest. When you are ready to be the oak-tree in the middle of my storm.  When I look into your eyes I can see your soul.

You make me laugh sooo much…I don’t just live with Dave.  I live with multiple characters, from Zoolander, to the funny dances you do to wake me up, to Tyrone, to Pedro, to prank guy, and my favorite…the helpless romantic who wakes me up with the song:  “Cause you’re amazing”

I just want to thank you for lighting up my life.  I know we’re going to get through this and we will be stronger…happier…and so much more.

Thank you for inspiring me.  I know God has put me on this earth for you…and you for me.

Happy Anniversary


Cause you\’re amazing… (see song)

    Yvette, I too was told I have cancer in my throat, which required surgery. The first thing I did was give my heart to Jesus and then surronded myself with positive people and refused to think negitive. I am 3 1/2 years cancer free and owe it to God, family and my WV family. You are the most positive person (couple) I know, and have no doubt you will conquer this obstacle with beauity and grace. I will pray for you every night. All my positive thought are yours, Rich Baierlein

    You and Dave are such a wonderful inspiration to everyone who meets you and, together, you continue to bless all our lives.
    I’m putting your name on my church prayer list for healing and also sending the request out to my own international prayer list. Prayers helped me recover from three major surgeries within one year and literally saved my life. I’ve seen the power of prayer work in so many others.
    God bless the both of you as you begin your next year of the wonderful adventure of your marriage. Sounds like bliss to me.
    The Peace of the Lord be with you,

    My dear Yvette,
    That was one of the most beautiful love letters! You are an amazing person and I know you will get through this health challenge and emerge with radiant good health! You have so much more to give, to live, to laugh to love. Envision yourself completely healed, playing, laughing with abandon, scintillating with life in your favorite place with your friends and family. See yourself completely healed and thank God for your healing several times throughout the day. There is a book that I found immensely helpful before my surgery. Send me your address and I will get it to you. It tells you how you can prepare for healing before, during and after surgery and how your friends, family can send you healing thoughts during your surgery. You will be fine!
    Love and hugs, Barbara Miller
