The date on my Star Map was the day I met my future husband.
My friend and I had gone to the San Antonio Riverwalk after attending a fraternity formal with some friends of ours. There my friend and I met a group of Air Force officers and began to hang out with them.
After everything closed, they invited us to Denny’s. One guy in particular melted me with his wit, bright smile and green eyes. At the end of the night he asked for my number, but said he didn’t have a cell phone and was moving the next day. I was really disappointed that this amazing man I had felt such a connection with, must have been feeding me a line!
However, the next day as I walked in my apartment back in Waco, the phone rang. He was calling to tell me what a great time he had. We met up one other time in San Antonio for our magical first date before he left for survival training.
Then in January, he was supposed to come visit me in Waco, but I was hospitalized for several days with complications from pneumonia. This guy, who I’d only met twice before, drove from Del Rio to Waco and stayed in the creepy basement of the hospital and visited me daily. While I was admitted he went on dates with my dad!
He still makes me laugh and makes my heart skip a beat 19 years and 4 beautiful babies later.
