I have often wondered what it was about that skinny, tall, long jawed boy walking down the halls of Timpview High School that made me instantly and deeply fall in love. Was it the always in style sweaters and immaculate style? Could it have been the way I saw other girls look at him and wish that he would give them some attention? Or, maybe it was how I felt every single time I have ever seen him do anything athletic....my heart would swell and I would find myself wishing instantly that whatever he was doing would end so that I could be near him. Maybe it was his generous laugh, or his smooth speech. Maybe it was his perfect smile and stunning eyes. Maybe it was my fascination of the fact that I had never seen his hair messy.
No, I don't think it was any of those things....although they helped, I think I have it figured out. It is the way he makes me feel when I am with him. Somehow, someway, he always makes me feel like he wants to be near me. He makes me feel like he thinks I am hilarious (which by the way was a great quality my own dad had), he makes me feel like if I leave, somehow things just aren't going to be as good.
What a great quality to have. What a great person to fall in love with. W
hat a great way to spend the rest of eternity.
I love you Babe!
