A Love Story

Once upon a time, there was a plain, insecure, college girl.  One day, she met a guy she wasn’t really crazy about, but who seemed to like her a lot.

She agreed to go out with him, never expecting it to lead anywhere.  (She was a poor college student, and he wanted to take her to a restaurant, so it seemed like a good idea.)  She let him buy her pizza, and then he asked her out again.  Though still a little uncertain about this guy, she agreed a second time, because he wanted to cook for her.

Much to her surprise, the guy turned out to be really sweet.  They dated for a couple of years, and then the Really Nice Guy was ready to graduate from college and head off for his first assignment with the Army.  He knew the girl wasn’t going to wait around forever, so before leaving he asked her to marry him, and she said yes.

The plain, insecure girl blossomed into a beautiful woman, married the Really Nice Guy, and lived happily ever after.

      Thank you. It was a lovely day, and a happy evening. We don’t really do “couple” things on our anniversary. We celebrate as a family.

    In today’s world there are not very many “happily ever afters”, except in fairy tales. Congratulations to you and Rob on making “happily ever after” a sweet reality, and for being such a positive example of marriage for your wonderful boys (and to us too)!!! You both are truly special and blessed!

    The beautiful woman, who married the Really Nice Guy, had wonderful, gifted children just like this couple, raised them in faith that they will honor God and rise up to call their mom blessed. Beautiful Woman and Really Nice Guy were truly blessed by God and lived happily ever after.

    You make a difference every day!

    Well wishes to the lovely couple from your friend in Texas where you had such a hot time!

    Fondest memories and regards,

      Thanks. Since I’m sure tonight’s agenda will include homework — and a late start because of cross country practice — I’m thinking of making sloppy joes. (That’s what the Really Nice Guy cooked on our second “date.”
