In 8th grade, I met the man I wanted to marry. Only I didn't quite know it at the time. I was absolutely in love with his charm, careless attitude, the way he could always make someone laugh, and his ability to always make someone feel special... even if only for a short time. Oh did he have a way with words... And I was so naive.
That charming boy who stole my heart for the first time, even stole my first kiss... of which I would never forget. I still have some notes he wrote me, which should have been long gone by now with everything else I have thrown away in the last 11 and a half years. This boy had a habit of writing bold statements by only the first letters, and at the time, god only knew what this meant to this boy: I.W.F.I.L.W.A.G.K.I.T.....
I will fall in love with Alyssa Ginnett King in time.
At 13 years old, I didn't understand. And I didn't quite know that I wouldn't understand for almost 12 years. I thought for sure "in time" meant "someday".... and "someday" never really ever came.
Although we remained friends, we went our separate ways... and today, it doesn't even matter which ways we went.
They always say "the rest is history", and this truly sums up how life puts all the puzzle pieces back together. No one really knows why we meet the people we meet. It is either because they are meant to change our lives... or we are meant to change theirs.
This boy changed my life at 13. Who knew at 25, I could be the one changing his.
In 2 weeks we will continue to make memories... together, traveling to New York City; a place I had always dreamed of going. No matter what the future holds, I am so lucky to have his hand to hold and so blessed to be his girl.
There is no need to rush. If "someday" is meant to be, it will happen... In the right time, with the right person, for the best reason...
