My heart skipped a beat. Who were they for?
The boyfriend of my Tuesday-night student worker got them for her. Today was the two-year anniversary of when they first met. How very sweet.
She read me the card nestled among the red roses and soft Peruvian lilies:
"Two years ago was one of the best days of my life. You showed me the meaning of love. A blessing sent from above, you're forever engraved in my heart, baby. Te amo mi amor."
"You're blessed to have that, especially at such a young age," I told her (she turns 21 later this month). "Some people wait their whole lives and never find it." (Like myself).
I'm happy for her. She's a very sweet and kind girl. She deserves it and so much more.
My heart longs for love that lasts but as I get older with each passing year, I know my chances keep dwindling. At least I get to see love exists in the world even if I can't have it myself.
Happy Anniversary, Araceli and Brandon!! Here's to many more!
