It seems funny how things happen ... it's as if God orchestrated the whole thing ...
From that chance meeting when my car broke down, we have since become "an item". Joe C. Reed is the best thing that could have ever possibly happened to me ... and the truth of the matter is, I wasn't even looking for a guy or a relationship!
Joe proposed to me that day when we last went out to eat. We went to Olive Garden, and right after I'd finished my meal, he took my hand, looked at me right in the eye, and said that he had something to share with me. That was when he got out of his chair, got down on one knee, took a small box out of his coat pocket, and slipped this gorgeous ring onto my finger. He then asked the magic words: "Will you marry me?"
I cried. Oh, LORD, did I ever CRY!! I bawled like a baby!!
I still can't believe that Joe and I are engaged! It seems like it is all a dream, but all I have to do is look down and see that beautiful ring perched upon my finger to remind me that it is not a dream: it is all too real!
I never imagined in a million years that I would have somebody in my life. I mean, look at me. I am a young woman with a disability that prevents me from getting around easily, and many people feel intimidated by it. Most often, they either point or stare, and it gets to be embarrassing in more ways than one. Or they whisper, or treat me as though I am invisible, which is even worse.
This is why I don't have that many friends. I am basically a very shy person; I don't make friends that easily, but I do have a small circle of friends. And now I have one in Joe C. Reed, my saving grace, my own personal guardian angel, who watches out over me like a father does to his daughter, even though we are only a few years apart in age.
I just hope that when we get married, that I can be a dutiful wife to my husband. I hope he won't be too disappointed in me. I'm scared that he will leave me when he finds out that I am not much of a cook (well? I shake uncontrollably: I can't help it!!) or that housework is too much of a chore for me! If he would leave me, I don't know WHAT I would do!!
Well, Joe is here to take me to work, so I'd best run along for now. Just pray that things continue to blossom betwee us and go as planned! I am still not used to the fact that marriage is in my future! It's like I'm walking in a daze, and I can't really get used to it! LOL Thanks in advance!
