How many of us are fortunate enough to still have their ‘first LOVE’ close to them? I am friends with a married couple that were high school sweethearts. These two will most surely grow old together because they have the formula that keeps that ‘new car smell’ on their LOVE. Even though I am not married I am still in close contact with my first LOVE. Every year for over twenty years, on Valentine’s Day I pay her a special visit. She inspires me because of her strength, beauty and her steadfast determination. I don’t know too many people that could have withstood the pressure that she faced. She was my first LOVE and she will forever be my MISS AMERICA.
