9 Years Ago Today

…a nerdy 17-year-old Girl with a center part got her first boyfriend,

…a handsome, long-haired older Boy she’d been crushing on for QUITE a while

…and on this day said handsome older Boy graduated from high school

…as the Valedictorian

…and gave an awesome speech about Jesus Christ

…yes, in front of the whole school

…and the nerdy Girl with a center part was in the audience, feeling so proud of the cutie she’d been “dating” for the past month

…since prom

…but Girl with the center part was going to be leaving for work crew the next day – a month in New York to work at a Young Life camp

…After Boy graduated, Girl and Boy went to a graduation party

…Boy took Girl home to her house and they sat on her porch

…Girl gave Boy a fleece blanket she made for him as a graduation present with cowboy boots on it

…Boy gave girl a journal with a sweet encouraging note in it

… and asked her “Jackie Douglas, will you be my girlfriend?”

….Girl freaked out inside! And of course said “YES!” on the outsideTo that little 17-year-old girl… you would be blown away if you knew you got the man of your dreams… and please – don’t ever do a center part again. Or wear shirts that show that much jiggly arm. It is not attractive. Also, get your fill of mushy pictures now – – once that Boy becomes your Hubby he will not support your crazy photo fix:)
