37 years ago I met my husband.
He asked me out on a date.
I turned him down.
He was patient and asked me out again. We became high school sweethearts and the rest was history... but not exactly the way you might be thinking. Sometime during the college years we wandered away from each other, married and raised family's of our own.
We found each other again several years back.
When he thought the time was right he proposed.
My response, "I'll try."
I had been through a couple of disastrous marriages. Marriage was a bad word.
