IF you know me personally, you know that I call my husband MR WONDERFUL , and he calls me "MY BRIDE" . We met for the first time, when I was fourteen years old. It was June.He was my first boyfriend. He took me on my first "sort of" date. My Mom let me ride on his motorcycle to a church function. We broke up the following school year. After High School, I moved away, married and had children. He stayed local, married and had a child. FAST FORWARD thirty plus years. We meet again, back in my home state and we got married. It's an incredible thing to finish your life with the person you first opened your heart to. It's a privilege I don't take lightly.
I never forgot "My red haired boy" , the picture of him remained in my minds eye. Here is a little something I wrote a while back about that summer day, long ago.
Summer Sun, melting asphalt
Motorcycle buzzing, passenger laughing,
Legs and arms flailing
A glimpse of orange (your hair)
A beautiful smile, blue eyes shining
The sound of your laughter as you pass by...
At that moment
You left an imprint on my heart
and my life
Leaving this photograph forever
in my minds eye
Then and now, YOU
My first love, the rest of my life LOVE.
Happy Anniversary Mr.Wonderful from your "Bride"
