As You Wish: Year 19

The summer I was 19, I was preparing for my second year in college. I had a lot of acquaintances, most of them guys, and I had a few close friends who were also guys. I could count on one hand how many dates I had been on. I wouldn't even need the whole hand. I was pretty sure I would never meet "the one." Guys just didn't seem interested in me in that way.

If, at that time, you had told me I was two short months away from meeting my soulmate, I would have rolled my eyes and said, "sure." And yet here we are, 22 years later, celebrating 19 years of married life. It still feels like this is only the beginning.

Those of you who are interested can read my "How we met" story here:

Honey, you are the Happily in my Ever After. As you wish.

Congratulations and may you be blessed with many more years! Are you perhaps a fan of The Princess Bride?

And you are a little less than half way from where I am and it looks like it happened the other day.

Thank you for posting this wonderful story again. I didn't remember reading it before but then I saw my comment from 2007 (with which I totally agree!) and realized I had. I'd have to say God certainly answered your prayers. Love, Mom
