Life is Grace

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do/ with your one wild and precious life?” (Mary Oliver)

“I fell in love the way you fall asleep, slowly, then all at once.” John Grien

That is true, mostly. I knew almost from the moment I met George that I was going to marry him. But that was intuition, not love. Still, from our first date on, we were almost inseparable, and by the end of our first week of dating, I think we both knew we had found something qualitatively different than anything either of us had had before. So yes, by the end of our first “unofficial date” I knew I would marry him, and by the conclusion of our first week together I was head over ears in love. Does that count as “slowly, then all at once”?

How about you? Did you fall slowly, or all at once?

Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Our story is just like yours—I knew when I first saw him that he was the one, and we’ve been inseparable since we were introduced that same day! ❤️ It took him a little longer to be sure than it did me, though!

    1. Same here! I wanted to get engaged several months later but it wound up taking a year…of course a year isn’t a terribly long time, but it sure seemed like it then 🙂

    1. Me too! And I waited a long time for this one to happen—I didn’t get married until I was 35. But oh, was it worth the wait!
