I am a firm believer in people being brought into our lives for a purpose, and in bringing this young man into my grandmother’s life when she was younger, and I know that he had a purpose in bringing my grandfather into her life, the man she raised four children with, and helped to raised forty two foster kids, I am beginning to see that the
purpose of allowing the first love to enter her life and then call him home is to give her a lesson in love, a lesson that has been carried with her until this very day. A lesson not easily forgotten, and I thank God that she was taught these lessons because her life has been an example to her family.




We all have something that has a special meaning in our lives, for my grandmother
It is the ring that her first boyfriend gave her that she wears on her finger. She’s getting older now, and her memory is not as sharp as it once was but she still tells the story of her first love.

It was the time before World War 2 in the mid thirties when the depression was
still causing economic suffering. He was studying to be a doctor at the time and my grandmother was working in a beauty shop. She was still in high school at the time they met, he being a couple of years older than he was. She talks lovingly about how she loved him, and he loved her, how he was studying to be a doctor, and he probably would have been a great one. One day she had a call from the hospital where he had worked though, saying that he had died of a heart attack. I know his dying hurt her, and still does I am sure, but she is older now, and understands more about things like death, though I am not certain that anyone at any age can truly understand the meaning of death, and why some people die young and other’s live to an old age.

Nonna as I loving call my grandmother, will stroke the ring on her finger, and I know she is thinking of the boyfriend she never got to marry. She knows in her heart it wasn’t meant to be because a few years after she lost her first love, she met the man she was going to marry and raise four kids and help to raise forty two foster kids with. I know she loved my grandfather with her whole heart, but I also know the fact that she still thinks of her first love, still strokes the ring with loving thoughts doesn’t diminish the love she had and still has for my grandfather.

I am a firm believer in people being brought into our lives for a purpose, and in bringing this young man into my grandmother’s life when she was younger, and I know that he had a purpose in bringing my grandfather into her life, the man she raised four children with, and helped to raised forty two foster kids, I am beginning to see that the purpose of allowing the first love to enter her life and then call him home is to give her a lesson in love, a lesson that has been carried with her until this very day. A lesson not easily forgotten, and I thank God that she was taught these lessons because her life has been an example to her family.
