Remembering the Beautiful Moments in my Life...

When I was in high school I had this great boyfriend who's family was soooo wonderful to me...We spent ever free moment together...His mother was a nurse and of coarse she had a big part in my decision to become a nurse...He went off to West Point for college and we kept in touch all four years and saw each other at the holidays...soon it was time for him to to go to Germany because he had become an officer and a gentleman...

My memories of him....

He used to sing prince to me all the time (note he could not sing, and I found it hard to break it to him) He would swear he sounded just like prince....ah what we do for love...I did not have the heart to break it to him....so I listen as if he was Prince (sign at the time)...hey "Football guy" It did not matter to me that you totally did not sound like prince...I loved ya anyway!!!

He used to tell me..." If you can love the one you want, love the one your with"... he would say that jokingly of coarse but it still brings a smile to my face....Hey "Football guy"...I still only want to love the one I want...

He had three sisters and when his mom would bring the groseries home he would totally hide all the good food from his sisters and claim that if he did not do it ...then they would...hey "Football guy it was me that ate the last oatmeal pie...not your middle sister....

He loved his mother but for the life of her she could not cook...we would wake up in the morning and she would offer us breakfast....anything that we wanted...pancakes(not all the way cooked and definatly not round), eggs...(OMG they only came runny and under cooked Yuck)...you name it ...she somehow could not cook it....ahhh but we loved her anyway...Hey "Football Guy's" mother we did not eat your cooked food but we gave you an A for effort....

He was a virtous young man and could not be swede in his believe system...he came from an affluent family...however I did not... but he never treated me as if I was not good enough...Hey "Football guy" I always felt your love...

Sometime looking back at your life put things in perspective....we were young...we were in love...but it came time for us to let go...he was truly a wonderful...young man ....he had a big impact on my life...and I on him....I know truly that he turned out to be a wonderful Officer and gentleman.....Hey "Football guy" I will never forget thoughs beautiful moments in my life....

I am such a blonde that I had to read this twice...At first I thought you were shouting at "football guy"...

Singing Prince badly is a crime.

Isn't the saying"if you CANT love the one you want LOVE the one you're with"? Or did he purposefully say the CAN instead of the CANT???

They say that hindsight is 20/20 but that's bullshit....you always know deep down inside what it is that is truly great but you don't have enough experience to weed out the other crap in your life to realize it. But the great thing about "growing up" is that you learn to appreciate what you have and learn to appreciate what you had.

Of course the bad part about "growing up" is partying till 3am and then having to be at work at 8am.

I'm sure he has fond memories of you too and I'm happy to know that someone else loved you as well. Although I must say, I would be a little creeped out if a dude sang "When Doves Cry" to me. But it could be hot in a non homosexual way.....right?
