The story of how I met the woman who became my wife, the first thing I learned about her is that she was the one who made me a sandwich.
I think my first job at the Corrections Corporation of America was at a plant where she was working on the food and she would bring us the food in a bowl and then we would eat it on the job.
She was the only woman in that facility.
It’s amazing, I think I have to give credit where credit is due, and she had no idea I would end up marrying me.
I met her after I started at the company.
She worked there for two years, and when she was let go she was like, “I don’t know why I didn of thought that I was going to make you a sandwich.”
I didn and it was like the most amazing moment.
She did, and it made me realize, “Oh my God, I am not alone in my experience.
I am the only person that has ever made me the sandwich I am.
I have made you this sandwich.”
It’s a story of hope and perseverance and it’s a true story of a woman who made a sandwich, and then a man made her the sandwich she is today.
She had the grit and determination and passion and a chip on her shoulder.
She would say, “You know, I want to be here, I need to be there.”
It was a huge step for her and a huge responsibility to her, because that was her life.
She needed to prove to herself and to herself to be the best she could be.
She didn’t give up, she didn’t quit.
And she never stopped working.
