I remember catching you look at me when you thought I wasn’t looking. But I was.
I remember when you asked me out, hesitant that I might say no. I didn’t.
I remember when you first reached for my hand and how it felt encircled in yours.
I remember the first tender kiss by the gate.
I remember falling in love with you and never quite recovering from it.
I remember waiting for your call and hoping it would last awhile.
I remember walking down the isle and having eyes only for you.
I remember the newlywed days that were replaced with the young parent days that were replaced with real life days.
I remember the struggles, the tears, the pain, the laughter, the joy.
I remember when it all began to fall apart, and we were afraid.
I remember how God gave us a second chance when no one else did.
I remember how our love bloomed again and became a bouquet I never thought possible.
Now it is today. And I love you more than I did when I first remembered.
awww dat is so cute……
Loved this, Peggy. Memories are special.
Peggy, that is so sweet and tender. You are a master with words. You fill us with hope.
Karen, thank you for your comment and your kind words.
