08:58 am - How I Love That Guy!
This morning I woke up to pink and blue tulips on the kitchen table and a note of un-dying love from my sweetie. Sigh... How romantic! It takes me back to the days when I was still a teenager, living at home with my mom, and Steve was persistantly coming around to court me. He sometimes came to the door with his guitar strapped to his body, playing a tune. To prove it, here is an old, scratched Polariod picture I snapped of him on one such occasion. I thought he was so handsome! And very brazen with his long hair and beard (a fashion that was just coming into style back then).
This "hippie-look" was new to my mom, and one day when Steve came knocking on the door, my mom came up to my room and announced, "Jesus is at the door." She was such a good sport about this new suitor, because her vision of a good match for me was the clean-cut, leave-it-to-beaver-style guy. And, I never liked that kind. I liked the rebels. But, Steve was a charmer and quickly won my mother over. He knew his manners and definitely knew how to get a mother on his side! Thanks, Steve, for persisting. Your persistance has carried us through many a challenge in life. Happy Valentine's Day, Sweetie!
