Where Has The Time Gone?Posted: March 8, 2013
Two years ago on this day, Farmer Ben gave me the shock of my life.
I will never forget that moment.
There wasn’t anything special about the day, just a typical Tuesday afternoon. I had gone to his house for lunch and he was pestering me about what he was going to make for dinner. I had just eaten a slice of pizza so, for once, I had zero interest in food or poking around his kitchen in search of sustenance.
Little did I know, he was trying to get me to look in the refrigerator because he had placed the ring on the top shelf. My pizza-eating had foiled his plan. He finally got me to open the fridge by insisting that I look at the chicken he was cooking for dinner.
And then I saw it. It was a beautifully wrapped box, complete with a colorful ribbon.
Unfortunately, I still didn’t get it…I thought it was a box of chocolate.
It wasn’t. Ben, exasperated, finally said “Just open it!”
And I did. Then I proceeded to ask, “Ben, WHAT IS THIS?!” about 235457454 times.
He told me to open the ring box, and I asked him one more time, “Ben, What. Is. This?!”
He responded, “So, there’s a question that I’ve been meaning to ask you for a while now…”
He continued (I’ll spare you the sappy stuff) and asked me to be his wife.
Of course I said yes. After I almost died of shock, of course.
We were married five months later. It was one of the best decisions
I’ve We’ve ever made.
I’m so blessed each and every day.
