My Love Story

This is a story from my own heart that I want to share with you since it is love story week. I also forgot that the 25th of April, would have been my late grandparents 59th wedding anniversary, and if they were both alive today, I have no doubt that they would still be celebrating! It is funny that after all my tweeting and asking about your stories, I only had to look to my own family to have my faith restored in marriage.   My grandparents met when they both moved to Australia after the war. My Grandfather was a Taylor and his future brother in law, worked for him.

Love Story 4

  This email was sent to me by a beautiful young women.    Hey Nikki, just thought since you wanted some stories about family as well, I’d give you my Grandpa’s.   My Grandpa (Graham) and his second wife Alma don’t have the most conventional story, but it’s still pretty amazing. Firstly (just so the story makes sense) I’ll say that my Grandpa is 18 years older than Alma so they couldn’t have exactly been childhood sweethearts. In fact Graham had been engaged to my grandma the year Alma was born. Graham had had a really nasty break-up with my grandma and Alma’s first husband used to beat her up, so they’d both had pretty bad first marriages and weren’t really looking to go through that again. Alma was my uncle’s neighbor and that’s how they met. At this time my Graham was visiting his eldest son and first grandchild;…
