Proposal Stories

Matt and Kelly

"Kelly was reluctant to take the trip to my family's land in Richland Center, Wisconsin. We had just gotten back from California after graduating and Kelly was nervous about finding a job. But, I had her convinced that we were going just for the night to relax and hike around, so when I told her that we had been given a chore to do she wasn't all that excited.

But, together we headed into the woods to plant the small tree that my parents had sent along. It was a beautiful May afternoon as we walked slowly along the path enjoying the warm air. I carried the shovel and Kelly carried the plant. We arrived at a spot in the woods I knew well.

I would walk out to this very spot whenever I had the chance in order to think about my life and my future. I would enjoy the beauty and peacefulness that surrounded me and wonder what the person I would bring to this very spot would be like. I would pray that someday God would give me someone to bring to this spot, so we could think about our future together.

I told Kelly this is the spot my Dad had instructed me to bury the plant. Kelly began to dig a hole, but stopped after a few minutes. 'Okay,' she said, 'it's ready.' She insisted the hole was deep enough. But, I knew better, so I grabbed the shovel and began to dig on my own.

(My turn.) At this point, Matt went kind of crazy. Of course, it makes sense now, but at the time... Well, he kept digging and I was getting impatient, when suddenly he hits rocks. I looked down into this already too deep hole, and told him to just leave the rocks there. He was going to bury the tree alive at this point anyway, so what were a few rocks? But, he gets down on his hands and knees in the mud and starts throwing these huge lannon stones over his shoulder.

Underneath the stones was a Tupperware container that I hadn't seen in 2 years. You see, when I was 20 years old, I wrote a letter to my future wife. And now I was giving it to her. I handed Kelly the container and told her what was inside belonged to her.

I was so confused. I opened the container and found a laminated letter inside. It said many wonderful things, but the best was at the very bottom, "Will You Marry Me?" I turned around and there was Matt, shaking and on one knee, with a box in his muddy hands.

I had tears in my eyes as I asked her to be my wife. She is the one person I have waited my entire life to find. She made my joy complete when she replied, 'Yes.'"
