I just wanted to write a quick post about the first time I met Jodee.
I was working as a bank teller when I met Jodee for the first time. She came to my line and could tell there was something special about her. I took my time, flirting with her and trying to find the courage to ask for her phone number. I finally devised my plan on how I was going to see her again. I was too scared to ask for her number so I decided to write my number down on a paper, I slid it to her, and said, "Here is your account number." She gave me a confused look and then finally realized that I was handing her my phone number. She told me that she wouldn't be able to go out any time soon because she was going to Africa the next day and wouldn't be coming back for three months. I was pretty let down when I found out she would be leaving the country for a while, she left and I figured that was the end of that.
Four months later, I was walking through the hall at my church and I saw the cute girl I met at the bank. I didn't remember her name but I knew she was the girl that went to Africa so I decided to talk to her. I tapped her on the shoulder and said, "how was Africa??" All I got was a stunned look, like, who the heck is this guy. I reminded her who I was then the stunned look went away. We started dating at that time and I eventually convinced her to fall in love with me. We dated for over a year then decided to get married.
Seeing Jodee's love for the kids she served made it really easy for me to fall in lover with her. We have really been best friends since we started dating and I am eternally grateful that she came into my bank.
