His Story: It started back when his parents decided to quit the dad's job at Ford Motor Company and move their three boys (college age, Senior, cute 5th grader) to a little town in Oklahoma to become house parents for a Cookson Hills Children's Home. That Cute Boy grew up working hard with his dad with dairy cows, rebuilding an old Ford Truck, playing basketball and football with his buddies. When it came time for college, he went to a Jr. college in OK, and transferred to a place in KS that offered a special degree he was pursuing. He had a close knit group of Christian friends through a local campus ministry. Cute Boy graduated from college and started a new job in Memphis, TN, leaving behind a girl he really liked who was dating someone else.
Her Story: Parents stationed in Okinawa had two kids, moved to Boston, then Florida, before settling in a extremely small rural KS community near the rest of the extended family. KS Girl grew up doing stuff with family, active in band and journalism. Traveled to Haiti and worked in the inner-city in NJ during the summer - she wanted to be a missionary in the inner-city. She went to Jr. college in KS before transferring to a Christian college for a year and then transferring to some place in KS where she found a close knit group of Christian friends through a local campus ministry. Oh, yeah, there was a unit of a small children's home in her small town, whose main unit was in OK... Imagine that!
KS Girl noticed really Cute Boy (oh yeah, they ended up in the same college, same campus group), and Cute Boy noticed Girl. He was the night-watchmen in her dorm... so they began talking... but both were afraid that dating would mess up a really good friendship... so they continued being just friends. Eventually she thought he wasn't really interested and started dating someone, and Cute Boy graduated and moved far away to a foreign place - TN, leaving behind a girl that wondered if the Cute Boy thought about or remembered her.
Girl stops dating other boy and somehow Cute Boy finds out from his buddy... He took a chance and wrote her a letter. Her heart raced when she received his first letter and slowly, at first they wrote. Sometimes he would be in town visiting his Buddies and he would stop by. She thought he was terribly handsome and smelled really good. He thought she was cute and he liked her.
Soon he was planning his business trips between seeing Little Girl and his parents and the long distance courting began. Soon they were thinking of forever, but not knowing...
Yea there ain't nothing not affected
When two hearts get connected
All that is will be or ever was
Every single choice we make
Every breath we get to take
Is all because two people fell in love
