Love at First Sight?


In a recent post, I had reiterated the true story of how Mike and I met 32 years ago when we were teenagers.  I ran across these pictures of us above that were taken about a year after we had met in 1975.  Mike still staunchly claims to this day that when he first laid his eyes on me, it was love at first sight.  For me, however, it took awhile before I even admitted that I was in love.  Coming from a broken family (my dad and mom split up when I was 10), I suppose that event affected my views on love.  But eventually I did grow to love Mike very much, and today, next to Jesus, he is the love of my life. 

The question I would like to pose to my dear readers is, do you believe in love at first sight?  I would have to say that to a certain extent, I do believe in it.  When our son Jeremy was born, the minute the doctor placed him on my chest, and he opened just one of his newborn eyes and peered at his new mommy, my heart was totally lost to him.  That was love at first sight for me!  But I carried Jeremy for 9 months, so I think there was already a bond there.   That was more of a maternal love at first sight.  But what I’m referring to by “love at first sight”, is when you first met your future mate.  Was it love at first sight?  Is there such a thing?

I welcome your comments.
