She said yes

When I drove six women to the church basement to get it in shape to hold a HeadStart, I never dreamed one of them would become my wife. I was not “looking” and she was in nursing school and in the Navy. We were just helping out so the kids could have a HeadStart in their poor neighborhood. However, I fell for her…but she kept ignoring me. Finally, I asked the priest what I should do and he said I should make my intentions known. So one afternoon, in the church, I asked her to marry me. And she said yes! What a wonderful moment. We have now been married 40 years with three wonderful grown children. And I still love her and am amazed that she would say “Yes.”
