My Love Story

With February being a month  in which we celebrate Love, thought I would share my very own love story with you.  Hope you enjoy it.

Flash back to the year 1966:

I was in the 5th grade in 1966 and my parents let me have a Valentine Party.  I  was to invite the  kids that I attended church with. A sweet little boy gave me this valentine and stole my heart. I have kept it all these years.                                     
Fast forward to May 1972

The same little boy,now a young man, left this poem for me on the dashboard of his car.  To shy to say these words out loud.  I kept the poem all these years, and memorized it in my mind.

Present Day

Do I believe in Love at first sight?  That same little boy became my one and only boyfriend and 37 years ago in July 1973 became my husband.  Mr. P. I loved you then and love you still.  I decided after all this time to do my poem in a stitchery to share with all of you and for my daughter and granddaughter to have as a symbol of our love together.
If you are fortunate to have a soul mate, take time to give thanks for the gift of love.  Hope love surrounds you today and all the days to come
