Throwback Tuesday – Romance – Inspired by a Fellow Blogger


A Fellow blogger, Kanzen Sakura, told a sweet romantic tale about her husband’s unconditional love, and it was so romantic and sweet, it inspired me to write about my man.

Joe came into my life when I was not looking for a man.  I wanted to just go out and enjoy life and all it had to offer.  I was in school and had two beautiful little girls.  My life was plenty busy enough.  Relationships were a challenge because there was so much going on. I was teaching a dance class and we all decided to meet for “dance club.” I had met with the dance club several times, informally enough.
club many times. We would just chat and talk about upcoming events and things we’d like to teach or attend. I had my head down when I hear an loud, echoing belly laugh so rich and so full that it caught my full attention. There, radiantly at the door with joy all around his countenance was Joe.

Immediately I was at attention. He was like a magnet and I was drawn to him. My heart leaped and said, “I want some of that.” Never before, nor since have I been so taken. Of course at this point, I’m trying to think of a way to talk to him and get to know him. I’m not really a scheming sort, but there had to be a way! Out of the blue came the sweetest thought. We need a telephone directory for our dance club! Also note, Marie has never called a boy! I was raised differently than it is today…but I just wanted to have some of this joy in my life.

Well, we made a date to see each other. But we both purposefully made it for an event that started at 3:00 p.m. That way if it didn’t work out, we could still go do our own thing. Needless to say, we talked for hours and hours. And here we are today. I think things worked out pretty well. Despite that he didn’t really want to date either. We both just knew joy when we saw it, and didn’t let it go.

I’m happy to report that 20 years later, we still have joy, and that beautiful man will stop anywhere, anytime and dance with me. And I enjoy every bit, whether it’s in a grocery aisle or a parking lot or our very own living room. I love that he still has that sparkle in his eye when he looks at me.

I am truly blessed. There are many more romantic stories to come.

  3. Marie – This is a beautiful story of love coming along when you least expected. I’ve always believed you can’t force love and Tom and I both believe in love at first sight. Tom and I have had that love from the beginning. We met on a blind date when I was already engaged to someone else and my divorce from my ex-husband wasn’t yet final. (Call me immoral or whatever). I simply knew I didn’t dare get my life wrong again. I had to clean up my mess because I wanted Tom if he wanted the woman that I was. I had no desire to go on a blind date. After all, I already had two commitments and had convinced myself I was madly in love with a man a continent away. I’d never been on a blind date and didn’t want to go on one that night all those years ago. Tom had never been on a blind date and he said the only reason he bothered to show up was to get our mutual friend to stay out of his office. We’re both convinced our mutual friend set the blind date up to serve his own purpose and that was to meet a friend of mine. She didn’t show and Tom and I spent the rest of the evening trying to figure out how to get rid of our friend. The same as you and Joe, we talked, walked and danced into the wee hours of the morning and we just celebrated our 28th anniversary. Tom likes to joke and say, I was street legal for a day and a half before we were married. Actually, the date was set and invitations had gone out before we realized my ex had sued me in another state and I was doing back flips to finalize everything. I was determined – – but that’s what strong women do, isn’t it. Sheri
