When I met Priscilla I had no money, no car... I was working the front desk at the gym where she joined. When we started dating I literally told her, "I have nothing to offer you." Yet all she asked for was my heart. On December 16, 2015 we decided to get married, just the two of us without anyone knowing. There was no engagement and no diamond ring. I had just enough money to pay for the marriage certificate and a $3 ring for her. All we cared about was being married and spending our life together as husband and wife. And even though her ring was only $3, she wore it proudly and showed it off to everyone as if it cost 3 million. She loved telling everyone she was Mrs. Carrasco. After a few months of marriage, a lot of hard work, and many prayers, I was finally able to buy her the diamond ring she deserved. And even though we we're already married, I got down on one knee and gave her the proper proposal she deserved as well. I'm not sharing this story to brag about money or because I can now afford nicer things. Instead, this post is meant to cherish and honor my wife for accepting me for who I am and what I had to offer at the time. The way she looked at me when I got down on one knee was the most rewarding moment of my life and now I can't wait to see her in her perfect white dress. I promise to always support her unconditionally through the good times and the bad, as she has done for me. And to continue to work hard everyday to prove her right for taking a chance on me.
