(continued from page 2)
For our Friday night date, Lynn had invited a girlfriend to join us as a safety backup (just in case I turned out to be much more sinister than I had first appeared). I turned up on time, my guitar in hand, but her friend was hours late in arriving. So, Lynn and I ending up having a lovely dinner alone. There was much laughter and sharing of stories.
After dinner we moved into the living room. With a stern look, I said, “Now sit down, because I’M GOING TO SING YOU A SONG!” And with that, I pulled out my guitar, made sure it was in tune, and began singing.
Before continuing, please listen to the song that Chris sang.
Within a few moments, Lynn’s concerns were gone. From my perspective she sort of…melted. By the end of the song, we both knew that something magical had happened.
It was only a few days later that I asked her to marry me.
She said yes.
