The Facts of Life According to Kimberly
You must know ladies that it all starts out pretty innocently!
It's just that innate curiosity that begins when we are little
to understand the differences between boys and girls, right?
Then before you know it, there we are stealing kisses at school.
He was just so cute, and such a gentleman, I had to let him.
"I sure hope the teacher doesn't tell my Mother!"
As we grew older, we attended the school dances together.
Oh, how exciting and fun it was to kick up our heels together!
However, I had to sneak out for these because the Baptist didn't
believe in dancing. Please don't tell anyone!!
Then I converted to Methodism and we sang in the church choir
Next came the marriage proposal. Did I ever tell you my husband
is an accordion player? No, well he is. So instead of the typical
down on your knees proposal, I was proposed to by song!
How romantic it all was!
Now I don't want you to think it happened right away, but as in all marriages,
a few years down the road we had a fight. Yes, a screaming, hollering, "I'm
not speaking to you" kind of fight!
I don't think you even have to ask why, do you? You can see how shabby
my dress has become. I wanted a new dress, and I wanted it now.
He agreed, of course, that a new dress was in order. But we
both knew we needed to get on our knees and ask forgiveness
before all would really be right in our hearts again.
The years have come and gone. We have settled into a sort of comfy coziness together.
We enjoy watching the g'children grow, sharing our books together, laughing at our own
silly jokes; in general, growing old together.
