A week ago, a new season of my life started, and this is how it went...
I was all busy and stressing, trying to get things ready for the trip to Switzerland, when Jean-Philippe comes and asks me, "Hey, do you want to go out for dinner?" To which I answered, "Sure, let me just finish this." (To be honest, inside of me I didn't really want to go anwhere.)
So, he took me to my favourite pizza place in town. While waiting for the pizza to be brought out, I started just bringing back memories of the two years we've known each other and memeories about how everything started. We laughed and had a good time seeing how we have fallen in love. It is a great story! Ooohhh, and obviously we got to eat rica pizza!
Hahaha, this is so funny to me...So then I said, "I can't wait to marry you!" (Yeah, yeah, those words came out of my mouth. Believe it or not).
Pulling the ring out, JP answered, "Well, then you can say yes to me."
"Wow, wow, wow, wow!" That was my reaction. No words but tears started coming from my eyes.
"No, this is not real," I said. "It can't be. You're kidding."
"Oh yes, it's real," Jean Philippe replied.
After a few minutes of crying and not giving him an answer, he goes, "Hhhhmmm, you still haven't said yes. Do you want me to go down on my knee? Do you want me to put it away and ask you another time?"
And my answer was finally and obviously, "YES!"
I was in SHOCK for the first little while and I wouldn`t look at my finger. Then it hit me and I started calling my family and telling them the news.
Please be praying for us as we start this season together!
