I was going through some of mine and Christopher’s love letters from when we were dating and I found Christopher’s very first Valentine’s Day card to me.
Rach, the past 5.5 months have been such a blessing for me, and for the first time in my 19 years of life, I have someone else other than my mom to call my Valentine. God has blessed me so much with you (you might be disagreeing with me right now but… I’m right… I’m older). I just can’t begin to tell you how much it means to me that you support my basketball addiction and let me have guys’ night… and just your over all support of me. You have helped raise my self esteem. You are truly a God sent blessing. If I had to pick a theme song for this past school year I think it would be “Count Your Many Blessings.” I just wanted to let you know how much I care about you, you have no idea how lucky I am to have you. I pray just about every night thanking God for you. Love, your precious.
7 years ago when I received that card from him I suspected that I just might marry that boy.
