"The Proposal Poem"

I'm very excited to unveil the latest addition to my ONE Project - this one featuring my dear friend Ronda Gunther.  

Years ago, she wanted images to use on a dating app- and I like to think my photography helped her to find her husband!  

Here is Ronda's story....

It was later in life, and I had been “single again” for 20 years when I met Tom through a dating service, Equally Yoked. Tom had never been married and neither of us had children. We had only been dating about three months, when Tom brought a poem that he had written over to my house.

As I read the poem, it seemed to be quite serious about our relationship and future. We had never had any discussions about money, kids, marriage, etc., so I was a bit surprised about what the poem seemed to be saying. When Tom asked what I thought of the poem, in my mind I was wondering if this was a marriage proposal, but I didn’t want to make that assumption and then feel stupid, so I just said “It seems really serious.” To which Tom responded, “You might want to keep it.” Inside of me I was thinking “Thank-goodness I didn’t ask if it was a marriage proposal.”

Three days went by and then I received a call from Tom’s brother saying “You didn’t ‘get’ the poem, did you?” I asked what he meant and he responded, “Read the poem vertically”.

When I looked at the first letter of each line of the poem, it read as “Will You Marry Me, Honey Bear (Tom’s nickname for me)”.

After discussions about marriage, we married and here are, 21 years later still loving being together.

Back-tracking a bit – Larry took my photos for the dating service, our engagement photos, our wedding photos and also photos of our Dads prior to an Alaskan cruise. I credit my Heavenly Father and Larry’s photography skill and for bringing Tom and I together.
