Falling In Love & Yes!!

Thirty-five years ago, my girlfriend (Hilary) and I got dressed up and went to try out a fondue restaurant which had opened in town (Walnut Creek, CA)…  It was also her birthday!

Hil’s Birthday 1984 and our Pre-engagement Photo (Hil in her little black dress)

I had written to Hil’s father (in advance) asking his permission for her hand and he gave his blessing.  We had just met (a little over five months earlier) in May.
We were (and are) very much in love.  I got down on one knee in-between the tables and I asked Hil to marry me…
She said: “Yes!“, and we were married in early December.   Thirty-five years later, the rest is history (and the unwritten future…)
[Happy Birthday, Hil !!
All my love,
— ALWAYS —

PS:  The fondue restaurant is no longer there.  It is now a Greek restaurant.  We will be going there (for an early dinner) to check it out.

You don’t love someone for their looks, or their clothes, or for their fancy car, but because they sing a song only you can hear.

I’m very pleased with each advancing year.  It stems back to when I was forty.  I was a bit upset about reaching that milestone, but an older friend consoled me.  ‘Don’t complain about growing old – many, many people do not have that privilege.

“Listen to me, Amin,” I said slowly.  “Listen to me very carefully.  Nothing is the same.  Nothing will ever be the same again.  There lives on this earth a woman who can be my friend and my lover.  Do you understand that?  Do you understand what a marvelous thing that is?”
“A friend is a friend,” Uthman interrupted, “and a woman is a woman.  You can’t have them in one person.  The whole world knows that.”
“If that’s what the whole world knows, …then the whole world is wrong.”
   ―   Barbara Cohen,
From: “Seven Daughters and Seven Sons

He who has not spent hours, days, or years with someone he loves cannot know what happiness is, for he is unable to imagine a protracted miracle like this – one which makes out of ordinary sights and events the most enchanted existence.

Hil’s Birthday 1984 and our Pre-engagement Photo (Hil in her little black dress)

[I don’t believe the above quote is an absolute, but I do feel it would be fairly difficult to imagine such a miracle without having shared such a “protracted” period.  As of today, my wife Hilary will have spent over half of her life with me passionately in love with her.
On this date, in 1984, on bended knee, Hil sitting at a candle lit table, in a (not too) crowded restaurant, I proposed.  —  And she said, “Yes.”
Happy Birthday, Hil!!
All my love,
Always,
Your Kev
