For Someone's Lack of Patience

You see, "SOMEONE" did not want to wait her turn and so the first words out of her mouth were, "what about me"? She was going to get a post all of her own but she wouldn't wait!!! Bad girl!!!! Ok - enough horsing around!!!!!
This is Christa - read below for further details!!!


Once upon a time in a land far away (the Smoky Mountains), lived the Family that had three children who attended a Christian School where "Miss Susan" taught. Now, Miss Susan had a Little Sister who lived too far away to attend school but was home schooled by her Mom. Every once in awhile her parents would bring the Little Sister to school so she could run and play with all the other lovely children. Little Sister often saw fit to chase after the family's oldest child, the Son. Little Sister often had her long blond hair in two french-braided pony tails which were probably used as weapons on occasion!! Anyway, a "hate" relationship was born between the Son and the Little Sister. Years passed, the Family moved away and the Little Sister grew up.
In the Son's Junior Year of High School, what to his wondering eyes would appear but the Little Sister. She came to his school to finish her last year of high school. Come Spring, SHE asked HIM to escort her to the Junior Senior Banquet. Oh the laughter the family had when the memories came forth!!! Life moved on and the Son decided after graduating to join the Marine Corp. Little Sister was in college and unbeknownst to the Family, "more than friendship" was happening between these two. Boot camp came and went, college went on, dating started and then the inevitable - ENGAGEMENT!!!!!!
Ok - enough storytelling!! When David and Christa first started officially dating back in January, I had quite the interesting talk with Christa and probably scared her to death!! But - I was the MOM after all!!! Anyway, Christa is absolutely a wonderful girl!! I believe that God is making her and molding her into the person He wants her to be and the wife that David will need!! We love having her around. She is a blast!! I could listen to her southern accent with no problem!! I am so thankful to have another daughter to have in our family!! We are grateful that God has provided someone for David that shares his faith and will help him in his walk with God.
So - there ya go Christa!!! Your very own blog!!! How did I do????

Until reading this I didn't realize they had known each other "in a previous life" but thought they met here. That is a great story!

Oh, I remember those days...it was braids and braces!!! She has really grown up into a lovely girl. I think she looks more like Susan every day!

Leah, I am going to have to check out that story of the Jr Sr banquet. I heard a totally different version. mmmmmm? My mom "hated" my dad when they were in grade school together and their marriage last beyond 50 years....hope that is a good indicator.

Linda S said...

Oh, yes, I think I remember a story of the son getting hit in the head with a plastic bat by the Little Sister.......

Leah said...

Linda, I could completely have the banquet story wrong but I have been wrong before!!!! Let me know what you find out!!

Linda S said...

Leah,
Your version is more humorous!

I DID NOT ask him to the banquet! He and I were at the school pinic together and he talked to me ALL day and I knew that he wanted to ask me to the banquet but never could get up his nerve! Sooo after he got a home run in the ball game, he came running up to me and asked me to be his date! THAT is the true story! Did he tell you something else????? And, yes, I DID like your post:-D Very good:-D Luv ya!!!

Leah said...

Very nice story. It makes me wonder who my kids will "end up with". I will keep my eyes open to see who they do not get along with right now. It is amazing how we change over the years. We are happy for your family.
