My seven year old granddaughter told me yesteday that they had to draw any fairy tale they wanted for art class. She went on to tell me that she did Rapunzel and the other kids didn't know who that was!
I asked her if she recalled how she knew that story?
"Well Grandma, you use to read that to me, remember?" Of course I remembered, as I love reading the fairy tales to kids. I believe that fairy tales can come true!
There is just something about the "Once upon a time..." that draws me in, along with the "happily ever after..." Love stories are my favorite; be it a movie, book or a real life story, they simply captivate me.
If you have ever read the Reminisce magazine, (I'm also an "old soul" it seems:) you will know that there is a section in there titled, "How I Met My Spouse." There are some great stories, most of them from the 40's and 50's
during the war years when men met their future wives while on leave. Wonderful memories made even better because they are true!
I saw my future husband when I was in 8th grade and he was a freshman. We didn't talk as he hadn't noticed me, but I went home that day and told my brother that I had to meet that guy as soon as I got to high school in the fall, and I did!
I will continue the story in my next blog, so for now let's just say, "Once upon a time, a long time ago..." ~to be continued...:)
--By the way, how did you meet your spouse?
