By Teresa Smeigh

Throwing the mirror at the wall all I could think about was how beautiful my sister was and how ugly I thought I was. She dated all the time and all the men seemed to love her. I sat home alone almost every night except for the nights I went to the church meetings. No one paid me much attention. I sat alone most days.

One day I was walking home alone, and Jonah stopped and asked me if I wanted a ride? I looked behind me as I didn’t think he was talking to me. After some mental debate I decided to get in the car.

We had the most wonderful conversation and spent hours talking over coffee and pie. This became our meeting night ritual.

One night he asked me to marry him. I was stunned! “Me? You want to marry me? What about my sister? You must want her surely. Everyone else does.”

We talked long into the night and he convinced me that he really wanted to marry me.

I never thought that was possible.
