For me our story begins about a month before we actually even meet. It was a Sunday and it was at our church. I saw her come in with a group of people one girl and another man, I certainly noticed her and well... how beautiful she looked. However for some reason I didn't go up and introduce my self to her I guess it's because she was with a group of people. A week or so after that church service Ann a friend of mine told me about Whit and how she was going to the UofO as well and asked me if I noticed her. I almost yelled in excitement saying yes I noticed her!!! but instead replied calmly saying a simple yes.
A few more weeks went by and I finally got the opportunity to actually meet her. It was another church service but a little different in that it was at UofO for life 101. It was after the service and we were all just walking around introducing our selfs. During this time I tried my hardest to position myself as to be the first person to introduce them selfs to her. However I believe I failed in being the first because I seem to remember one of the other women there being the first that night. But then it was my turn. I walked up to her trying to be as smooth as I could like most men do when they meet a beautiful woman for the first time but then I thought about how silly I must have looked so I decided to just be myself.
We went through the regular greetings as all people do when they first meet but this meeting was special as I am sure most of you guessed. Now this is the part where I explain all these wonderful and beautiful things that I noticed about Whit when I meet her but I will spare you the huge list and instead I will just tell you that her eyes were one of the things that I really liked about her because not only were they beautiful but they reassured me that I could be myself.
So then my next chance with Whit was her birthday. She invited me to come over to her house to for cake and what not. I went over to her house and her mom and dad and a few of her siblings were there for her birthday. So I got to meet all of them although I don’t think they even thought that I would be their future son in law. Anyways, once we were done eating cake and chatting we all stuffed our selfs on the sofa to watch Wallace and grommet the wearrabit. Now you see Whit is a very skittish person so the smallest things scare her and before we started watching the movie I was informed of this. So I really wanted to be able to sit next to her during the movie in hopes that if she got scared she would cling to me. However since Wallace and grommet is not much of a scary movie it didn’t really happen, but she did jump a few times during the movie. Yet she wasn’t scared enough to cling to me.
So then my other chance came when we decided to car pool together out to church. As Whit explained earlier she wanted to ride her bike to church so I drove her car and I meet her at church. After church I kindly suggested that we go to lunch together, hopping and praying that she would say yes and to my surprise she did say yes. So I took her to a place with good food but no where too fancy so I wouldn’t freak her out. I payed for her lunch like any gentleman would and then we started talking about our life’s and interests. This is about the time when I became completely infatuated with Whit and wanted to know so much more about her. I opened my heart to her and shared my life to her in hopes that she would learn to maybe love me someday. To my surprise again she did start to love me. Granted it was in small amounts at that time but I could still tell that a love was growing in her. So then lunch turned into dinner and dinner turned into a movie.
Now it was time that I would make my move in showing her that I really cared about her and that I really liked her. We sat down to watch our movie, Kung Fu Panda and we sat and watched and sat and watched a little more until I decided to be the man and inch my hand over to hers. I slowly unfolded my crossed arms to a relaxed position on my thighs then my left hand slowly but carefully eased into the valley formed by our legs. Then after a small little poke from my pinky to her leg, her hand came down onto mine. From there I pretty much forgot everything else because I was so excited that Whit would just hold my hand.
From that one night where I finally got to hold her hand and express how I really feel about her our story just kept getting better and better. God gave me the opportunity to love someone with all the love I have, but he then also gave me someone who would give me the same love and respect back. I know that God has searched the entire Earth to find me the perfect bride that will give me a love that could never be matched. When I met Whit God made sure to throw me every sign he possibly could to show me that Whitney is the perfect bride he chose for me.
