Rachel and I met as children. I was 10 and she was 8.
My brother, her brother and Rachel and I played together all one summer… and then we didn’t really see each other for years.
We met again when I was 20 and she was 18.
From the moment I laid eyes on her again… her smile, her sparking eyes, her quick laughter… I wanted to marry her.
Seriously – first glance.
She thought I was amazing too, so it was a good match.
“Who can find a virtuous wife?
For her worth is far above rubies.
The heart of her husband safely trusts her;
So he will have no lack of gain.
She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life.”
I love you, darling.
Thanks for sharing this madcap adventure with me.
