Love GenX Style Contest entry #21

Remember the story with the most votes wins the "date with your spouse" gift certificate! If you haven't yet submitted a story...what are you waiting for? :)

Today's entry is from Rebecca:

My husband and I "met" in grade one. But for the next 6 years, we were in separate schools. Then in high school (gr 8) we really hit it off and were part of the same tight-knit group of friends until grade 10 when we started dating. We dated for the next four years before getting married.

My mother-in-law who is an avid picture and scrap saver has many albums and memories of my husband. So while visiting one day, I started going through and looking at some of the items. And what did I find? A picture of hubby and I doing a relay race together in grade one. We were squeezing a beach ball between our necks. The picture became the cover of our reception programs at our wedding. It makes me think that maybe we connected at that young of an age already that we paired up together.

You don't hear about kids growing up together and then getting married one day (my grandparents had this happen to them, but that was years ago). And I thought I met my hubby early! (I was 13.) Great story!!

That is AMAZING! It's funny how God works sometimes, and it truly is incredible how He weaves everything together even when we don't see what the design's going to be!
