Happy Engagement Anniversary

collage or R and B sr pics

Forty-nine years ago today, Russell Ford came to the door to pick me up for our Saturday evening date. When I greeted him, he said, “I love you,” and handed me a box. I was shocked to find a diamond engagement ring inside. I was the happiest woman in the world, and that was the happiest day of my life to that point. He is still the most wonderful man in the world, and I love him more each day.

We were children. Really. Or at least I was. I’m quite sure I must have been just a baby. I was just graduating from high school (the next day), and he had finished his sophomore year in college.
