True love came in the form of a freckle-faced, red-haired 12 year-old boy with a cast on his arm and braces on his teeth who I saw across a junior high cafeteria as I waited for my bus.
Even though I've had a crush on my husband since I was 11, he didn't know it until I was 16. I remember it like it was yesterday...
Even though he didn't know I liked him until high school, I did share it with a few people back in junior high. One of those friends was kind enough to write my phone number in my future husband's junior high yearbook. Told him to call me and five SHORT years later he did just that with said number (luckily it hadn't changed).
And there's even physical proof of our relationship at our old high school. The brick you see in the photo above is part of a dedication wall at our high school, and it even shows the date we got married.
I think it's easy to love someone "because of". After many years of marriage, I think true love is sometimes found in the "inspite of's". Those little quirks you learn about as time goes on, but you love them anyway.
I was lucky enough to have found my true love across a crowded junior high cafeteria. How did you find yours? Your love could be a person or it could be a hobby that has changed your life. Either way, I want to hear about it. What is your true love and what does it mean to you? Get to posting, because I can't wait to hear your stories!
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!
