Him and Me!

I knew Mr.K ever since 7th grade, back then you went to Jr. High from 7th grade to 9th then on to high school  9th thru 12th, I was a sophamore in 1967 and he was a senior. I always thought he was a nice guy but we never dated or anything and so we went our seperate ways. We both ended up married to the wrong people even though others would tell us that we were making a mistake but when your young you tend to think you know it all, so we both went thur years of heartache but we each say it was worth it for having the kids we had…me with four…him one!
I meant Mr.K again about ten years ago he was 52 and me 51 and I can say with all my heart that I fell in love with him right then and there. I knew I had found my soulmate, a good man, my prayers had been answered. You know it’s not easy dating at that age and the dating culture sure had changed since the 60’s we had both been single for a while, so we went into our new relationship with caution on both sides but after five years of dating we knew we wanted to be together forever so we married on May 26th 2006! the best decision I ever made…he makes me laugh everyday, we will think of the same things and the same time and we were born exactly a year and a day apart me April 7th, him April 8th!
It makes you wonder why we didn’t know this back in 1967 but as my dad used to say “you can’t put an old head on young shoulders” how true! Maybe we went thur what we did so that now we can so appreciate each other…maybe.
Do you see the letter e in my name, Mr.K said he remembers hesitating when writing my name because he wasn’t sure how to spell it, and I remember reading it and thinking “ he didn’t say I was “tuff”… a word back then that meant you were “hot”!
Thank you Karen for having this linky party over at My Desert Cottage!
Happy Valentines Day to  everyone of you and I hope with all my heart you have found a love like I finally did!
Love You Mr. K!!!

Sometimes Cupid misses his mark and he doesnt know it until much later on.
He got it right with the second arrow!
