It didn't actually begin this day 4 years ago but my new life with my lovely bride started 4 years ago. You see we were married December 29th, 2001. Let's take a little stroll down memory lane. It actually all began during my first day of work at Safe Landing in April of 2001. I was sitting in Joe's office doing some going through some training and in walks Delilah. She asked Joe if there were anymore positions open (she had a friend she wanted to work at Safe Landing) Joe answered "no I hired everyone I need" Delilah told Joe to fire me. So it began. I sensed a little flirtation going on and thus the challenged started. The next several months I began talking to her to and actuallay asked her out three times. Each time she turned me down with a lame excuse or another. One excuse was that she had to go home and clean her apartment because her parents were coming to visit. Cleaning consisted of putting the dirty dished UNDER the sink. Another time I asked her out and she said that she had to go home and clean up because she was having some friends over for a bachlorette party. During a missions trip to Alaska in July of 2001 I had decided I was not going to ask her out again. I had a a rule of three strikes and I'm out. Well, Delilah apparently had other things on her mind. She had told her family and several friends that she was going to marry me. WOW. After returning from the trip I had to work the overnight shift at Safe Landing. Delilah conveniently offered to call and remind me about my upcoming shift. We did not talk much because she woke me up when she called (and I am not a morning person). She also conveniently picked up an overnight shift at the girls Safe Landing at the same time I was working the over night shift at the boys Safe Landing. She proceeded to call me during our work shift and we talked and talked and talked. More than I thought it was possible to talk. I asked her out on our first date (to the Chapel, a church in Akron). As they say, the rest was history.
