A Dance She Always Remembered

A Dance She Always Remembered

     It was the mid 40's and the young woman was quite sociable and thoroughly enjoyed going to dances at the local YWCA. Even though at 5 foot 10 inches she was taller than most of the other young ladies, she was also quite attractive, so she rarely had to sit out for a dance. It seemed like all the guys liked to ask her to dance with them, even the ones who only came up to about her chest.

     One evening, at one of those dances, she heard somebody from behind her say, “Excuse me?” and she knew it must be one of the guys asking her to dance. She turned around to see who it was, and discovered that this time there would be no need to look down at the one asking to have the next dance. Instead, she found herself looking up at a decidedly tall and quite handsome young man. He very politely asked if she would like to dance, and she very happily agreed to do so.

     As they danced, they talked, and they continued to talk when the music ended. When the dance was over that evening, he walked her to the trolley stop. It turned out were both going in the same direction so they got on the same trolley. As it rolled along, they continued their conversation.

     As they neared the stop where she would be getting off at, she asked the young man which was his stop he got off at to go home. He smiled and answered, “Oh, we passed it, three stops ago.” The young woman was both amused and pleased to hear that.

     At her stop, he stepped off with her, and walked along until they got to the door of her home, where she lived with her folks. As they said good night, even though kissing on a first date was simply not something she normally did, she didn't hesitate to make an exception this time. She gave him a kiss good-night and said she enjoyed meeting and talking with him. She went inside and hoped very much she would see him again.

     As it turned out, she did see him again. And they started going together. And in time he asked her to marry him. They went to Niagra Falls on their honeymoon. About a year after the wedding they had a baby girl. About a year and half later they had a baby boy, and a while after that they had another girl. At times he worked 3 jobs so she could be a stay at home mom, which is what she wanted to do. For their 25th wedding anniversary they went to Niagra Falls again. They went through life's ups and downs together and remained very much in love for the rest of their lives.

     I got to hear about how these two met because I lived with them for quite a number of years. They were my Mom and Dad. I am so blessed to have had them for my parents.  I'm so glad I learned a lot about how to have a good marriage from them as I seek to help my wife be as happy to be married to me as my Mom was to be married to that guy she met at that dance she always remembered.
