A Question That You Should Say Yes To
Once in your life
I’ve got a question for you!
Doc and I don’t have a song. Nothing has ever really seemed to fit our relationship and despite the fact that many songs speak to us, we’ve never had "our song”. I love the Old 97’s song “Question”. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy to think about Doc and I deciding to stick together. Many people know our engagement story, but a lot of people don’t know the first time Doc told me his intentions. I think that moment was the one that sealed us together.
We were sitting on the old blue dumpster coach in Doc’s dorm room. We had been working really hard on all of his medical school admissions paperwork and Doc and been accepted to OSU. I remember thinking about him leaving Stillwater. As much as I loved him, I knew that I could not afford to move to Tulsa and pay for my own stuff. Tulsa was too expensive and I was terrified of what my life would be without him. He was going to graduate in a few months and leave me. I remember tears forming in my eyes as I thought about it. I don’t remember the exact discussion that followed, but I remember Doc gently brushing a tear from my cheek and holding my hand and saying, “Listen. I am going to marry you as soon as it makes sense to.”
That was the first moment that I realized that Doc never worried about what it would be like when he left to go to medical school because he had planned on taking me with him all along. He never doubted for a moment that we would be together through all of our toughest journeys. I worried about so many things, and here he had it all figured out.
I think about those two kids in love and all of the changes we’ve been through and I think that’s why we’ve never had a song. We change. It’s one of the best things about us as a couple. We have changed so much since we met and it’s only made us stronger. We are the kind of couple that can change and grow and morph and still find that firey love for one another.
So we may never have a song. We might have a song de jeur. Here is today’s:
