Love quotes were the start of my lifetime romance with Ruben Warren, my husband of 30 years. I remember when Ruben and I started dating. I had known him before because when I was a little girl we went to the same church.
Broken Heart Quotes Even for Tender Hearts
He was 15 years old and five years older than I was so we didn't really associate or travel within the same circle of friends. I would often wonder what it would be like to talk to him, you know, kind of a little girl crush. But he never gave me a second look. I guess it was because I was only 10 years old.
Over the years we lost touch. Luckily, my family was still in contact with his grandmother so through her we met again over a decade later. However, unlike when I was 10 years old, I was not impressed after having met him again. He wasn’t my type.
Eventually though, we were reminiscing about the days when I was the rowdy little 10 year old who was always getting into fights for my younger sisters. Today we still laugh about me turning the church corner one day covered in dirt and scars. My hair was often all over the place. Yes I was often defending my younger sisters or getting into some kind of trouble.
Sweet Love on Sweetest Day
Sweetest day was an interesting day because on this holiday Ruben came bearing gifts. I wasn’t in the habit of taking gifts from men when we were not in a relationship, but since it was sweetest day I thought a little candy might be delicious I love chocolates .
Well, I didn’t get chocolates! I tried to hide my disappointment until he left. I remember complaining to my sisters later on that night, “he brought me a ROCK,” I said. I felt like everybody else gets candy and flowers for the holidays for Valentine's Day or for sweetest day holidays, and I get a ROCK. Needless to say he wasn't high on my list as a boyfriend. But time has a way of changing your heart and your mind.
