first date

Jun 7, 2011

Eighteen years ago today I asked Richard to take me fishing. The weather was quite a bit like it is today…kind of overcast and dreary, so he asked if he could take me to a movie and dinner instead. Jumping with joy, I said YES!

His whole family was at the movie with us, sitting a few rows behind us and I was scared stiff that I would do something wrong in their eyes and not make it on to the “approved” list. At dinner, I ate off his plate, which greatly surprised him, but seemed to bring a smile to his face as well. Afterwards we stayed up talking till late in the night and I was head over hills in love. I felt completely safe in his presence. I was comfortable in a way I had never been before. I felt complete.

About eight weeks later he asked me to marry him and my life has been greatly blessed ever since. I am not an easy person to live with, but somehow he brings out the best in me and helps me see who I can become.

I think we will have a date later tonight…if I can stay awake that long!

  1. Did I ever tell you that I asked Matt to take me fishing for a first date (we had many “first” dates in our on and off courtship).
