WHEN WE MET…


Who doesn’t love a good romance story?  Well, here’s the beginning of mine…

In Spring 1979, a new minister was hired for our small rural Baptist church. In May, his oldest son arrived from college. He mesmerized all us girls with his thick dark hair parted down the middle, dark mustache (ala Burt Reynolds) and blue eyes that could pierce a young girl’s heart. He was a FOX!

However, at 19 years old and in college, he was WAY too old for this pre-pubescent 14-year-old girl.

BUT…

He had a younger brother!!!
(He was finishing out his senior year of high school before he joined the rest of his family.)

I (along with a number of young ladies) anxiously
awaited the arrival of the younger brother…
And then his brother showed up —
with all his goofiness…
Uh, nevermind!

However, that July, two of our lives were about to change…

To be continued….

Come back to hear — (in Paul Harvey voice) the rest of the story!!!

Y’all have a great week enjoying your loved ones!
