We met each other at a church camp in Phoenix in 6/2011. I had a chance talking to Kim during a car ride with a few friends to get water for the camp. I tried to be sociable by exchanging a short conversation with her. She was a newly graduated pharmacist (not even licensed yet). We were the same age, but I had worked for more than 2 years already (as a licensed pharmacist). I didn’t bother to ask why but in my head, I was thinking there must be something was wrong with this girl (either not very bright or lazy). So I was like whatever.
The second time I encountered her was at a Baptist conference in SoCal around 7/2011. This time, if my guess wasn’t wrong, it seemed like she was the leader of some younger high school and college kids from her church during the conference. She seemed very caring, and the kids were following her like the little minions. So I thought this girl wasn’t that bad (actually pretty good). But I was still like whatever.
The third time I encountered Kim was on Facebook (of course where else I could go to meet my future wife). At that time, she just got her license and started working for Walgreen (God bless her soul). She wondered if she could ask me some questions about retail since she was new and I was, of course, an experienced pharmacist (I said it with humility). Because I was (and still am) a nice guy, I didn’t mind at all.
So we kept in touch every now and then until one night. After a very long chat until like 5 am in the morning, I found out that she was (still is and will be) a spiritual, sweet, intelligent, family-oriented, loving, and of course pretty lady (I stalked her on Facebook). Our affections for each other kept growing, and I felt like this was the godly woman that God wanted to put into my life.
On 11/17/2012, a very chilly rainy date at The Grove, I kneeled down on my knee in the middle of a busy shopping center to ask her to marry me. She took the ring and didn’t say a word.
That’s my story about Kim.
