Fourteen Years Ago

I was 18 he was 22.

I was scared, I think he was too.

I had no clue what the future would hold.

How hard it would be, or how wonderful.

We first met at a church youth rally.  My husband and his brother arrived late for the first service, and he noticed me from the back of the church.  He whispered to his brother that he was going to marry that girl, and when my husband says he is going to do something it generally happens.  This was no exception. 

After the church service a group of youth went to Pizza Hut.  When we arrived I was the last one to be seated and guess who was sitting across from me.  We started talking, and something just clicked.  I felt like I had known him all my life. 

I can't believe it's been fourteen years!!  In some ways it seems like yesterday. 

Can't wait to spend another fourteen years together!
