Why in the world she ever fell for me, I’ll never know.
My girlfriend and I started officially dating in October 1984. It was a whirlwind romance. It started with a little Bible study in a typing room on the 4rd floor of the Ball State Bracken Library and we never looked back.
What started as a little study and prayer turned into a romance and by August of 1985 we were walking down the aisle.
I would like to be the first to say that it wasn’t always easy, but my wife beats me to it every time. Despite three kids, multiple jobs and various locations, through good and bad, with ups and downs, heartbreak and sorrow, anger and frustration, we’ve managed to do more than survive: We’ve been able to thrive.
This woman, this fantastically brilliant, talented, beautiful woman has saved my life and made my life a true joy. I can’t imagine going through life without her.
