The Marriage When I was a little girl, I’m 40 now; I never thought about getting married. I didn’t even like boys in “that way”. I have always been a “Tomboy”. I have always wanted to do what the boys did. I enjoyed getting dirty. I wanted to lift weights, play basketball, and I enjoyed so much playing football. I use to play all the time with my brother. I didn’t understand tho, as I got older, my brother didn’t want me playing with him anymore. I never did understand; until playing with them, the team, one day. Down! Set!

I was still thirteen of course so there was not much I could do since I only saw him on Sundays. I am not sure how this would turn out but I wanted to try. I could not let him know all my questions and becoming his friend was a desire to get to know him. I had to hide that part about myself. I realized then I had a crush, never before had I felt like this. I was a tomboy; I thought to myself, how I can feel like this. Sundays was the best day of my week. I was going to church for two reason, to hear The Lord’s word and to see Him. As time went by I got older, I was seen diffidently to Him. He began to talk to me little bit more.
