“It was just another typical cold day in Moscow, Idaho, my teammates and I just got out of another hard and dreadful day of practice. We went about our routine, post-practice clowning around in the locker rooms followed with treatment. Headed home from a long day, my friend and I took our usual walk, passing the athletic workout facility when we noticed the girls Tennis Team working out. As we passed by, my friend brought a beautiful young lady to my attention. She was this tiny four foot nothing Asian who was half heartedly doing her team workouts; crazy to think that I was actually gazing upon my future wife. From that day forward she ran through my mind constantly and I could not be at peace without satisfying my desire to know everything and anything about that woman and be a part of her life no matter what it took. It was days before my birthday and I thought there was no better opportunity than now to “break the ice” by asking her to accompany me on my special day. I got denied. BUT my attempt, or should I say attempts, did not go unnoticed. I was very persistent and continued to do whatever was necessary to get her attention. As time passed our mutual friends began to be the reason for our encounters and I took advantage of every moment. In doing so it then led to her being my number one fan, supporting me at every single home game, best friend, comforting me after every loss (and boy! there were many), and lover, spending every memorable moment together. Her smile lights up a room, her laugh brightens my day, and her encouraging words motivate me daily. I love her with all of me, and will continue to let my love adorn her till death do us part.
