History DOES Matter


Sunday, November 10, 1940 
A day that forever lives in infamy. A day to remember. A day that will never be forgotten.
My father (Dad/Pop) had just turned 16 a few days before that life-changing Sunday.  On that day he was 5847 days young.   His father allowed him to drive his 1936 Chevrolet to Bloomington Christian Church that evening for what was called Christian Endeavor. The purpose of the group was “To promote an earnest Christian life among its members, to increase their mutual acquaintance, and to make them more useful in the service of God.”  
Dad drove Mom home from church that night in Grandpa's 36' Chevrolet.  The total distance was the length of a football field.  Mom told Dad that she was going to give him a kiss for his birthday.  She sure did!!  It must have been a doozy!!!!  Pop blushed this morning when he told me...."THAT was it for me.  I never dated anyone else. She was then and still is my ONE TRUE LOVE." Mom looked at me with tears in her eyes and said, "The same goes for me.  The feeling was mutual.  And it still is to this day.  He is MY ONE TRUE LOVE."
 75 years, 3 months, and 2 days later,
They are still in love!
   27,487 Days of Tennessee Treasured True Love !!!
Their journey together, on their path of life, began that Sunday evening. 100 yards and almost 100 years later Love began, blossomed and endures.  Our family was in essence born that day.  With a single kiss.  To only have a life long love and devotion to Christ our Lord and Savior.As well as a love as true to one another as theirs......  Sigh.....  ♥ Sniffle........... ♥♥♥ True Love! ♥♥♥ It's a beautiful thing. 
Love you Mom and Dad to the Moon and Back.
With all my heart....

 Then, Now and Forever..........History DOES matter. 

 Happy Valentines Day!
Mom and Pop
