|Once upon a day….a simple Puerto Rican girl…
(not so young for she was 35…)
met a guy from Colorado, USA, an OK guy, so they said.
Since the two used to chat on-line,
and they lived far away,
their friendship grew
without them having a chance
to share in person…
(at least for a while)
and a year passed by.
He met her daughters on-line,
and sent everyone Christmas presents, T-shirts,pictures, books, and more.
She wanted to travel and meet him
and his family but had no money
at the time.
He wanted reality so
they stayed as friends
but love was so strong that one day
he got on a plane!
He beat the mosquitoes, the rain,
and the traffic jams,
and ate rice and beans
Puerto Rican style.
They kissed, and discovered
their love was for real,
there was a feeling between them,
a feeling of being just right!
He went back to Oklahoma,
and wasn’t so sure
if waiting or moving was the next step on his road.
Days passed by…she missed him so much,
and the great thing was
he missed her a lot.
They talked about alternatives,
and struggled a bit,
and finally he said
‘I’ll move to Puerto Rico,
and I’ll be your guy!’
In November, 1999,
he joined his future bride.
The planning continued,
the search for a job,
and family issues, matured their love.
He suffered a heart attack…
( some said too much love!)
and they endured the trials,
for God was their strength.
With time he recovered,
and with the help of his parents,
her parents, relatives, and friends,
they celebrated their wedding,
in a park filled with trees
and the sounds of the birds,
near the ocean.
The bride was late,
and it was a hot day,
but the ceremony was so beautiful,
flowers so delicate, food was plenty,
and there was a white, beautiful,
delicious wedding cake!
It was lots of work,
and many helped out.
They had a fun day and later that day
left San Juan to start
their camping honeymoon.
Cody Dog went with them.
They took lots of pictures,
and ate lots of sandwiches.
It was a great time,
they’ll always remember!
They’re back home now, with the girls,
the cats, the dogs, the cleaning,
the laundry, the cooking,
but always, always with lots of love…
That’s all? Not at all….
PART II, 2003
If you ask me what's the best memory of our lives together?
I guess the best memory is the one we're building now...
The girls are growing, planning their lives, and working on it.
We have our precious Louriana,
we never dreamed of having such a blessing in our lives.
So now there's us, and little Louriana, our Cody dog, and Matilda cat at home. Kayra and Sarai are grown, living their own flight.
But back home we know, home is where your heart is, and in this heart there's so much love!
PS: Cody Dog went to Doggy Heaven (2005). God blessed us with a little boy! Surprise! Michael is two now...
Life continues for God has a plan, our lives are in good hands! (2008)
