A Love Story
Just look at that smiling face: that's my great-nephew, Steven. He's thirty years old, very intelligent, has a good job, and is buying his own home. Oh yes, and his personality is out of this world.
He's a bachelor who's been waiting to meet the right lady, and thanks to the Internet, it's finally happened.
I've read lots of negative things about Facebook; I've even heard of homes wrecked when people met up with old flames and decided to hook up with them again.
So I wanted to share this positive side of Facebook.
When you have a Facebook account, friends are suggested by other friends, or by Facebook itself. Steven "friended" a girl with whom he graduated at Oklahoma Christian College. They had never dated, and were simply casual acquaintances back then, possibly both dating other people at the time.
And now they're engaged, and have tentatively set a date. They're going to get married in Hawaii.
I'm excited for them.
I love happy endings.
