Corey and Johnna in the Wild Wild West

True Love found on a Redneck First Date

My name is Johnna Essary and from the time I was a little girl my mother always told me and my brothers that God had the perfect matched partner out there somewhere for us; and that person would be the strengths for our weaknesses & we would be the strenghs for theirs.and we would fit together like a glove. She also said we would date other people and know something was missing, our other half; and that when we met that person we would be complete. I have had my share of bad relationships & thought I would never find true love. Then a friend I worked with fixed me up with a friend of her husband and we went out on our first date June 19, 2009. He picked me up on a 4wheeler. I thought then and there something was definitely different about this one. Itwas kind of cool though; you see I had been raised with 4 brothers so something like this was exciting and impressive to me. Everyone else thought it abit strange and redneck but not me. Well I knew that first night that he was the love of m life and he stated if a girl as pretty as me didn't get offended by getting picked up on a 4wheeler and getting dirty going mudding then she was the one for him. I am a CNA and have worked in the medical field for 8 years and have a passion for working with the elderly patients. I just love them so much, they are like my own grandparents. Corey is attending nursing school to be a LPN. We plan on getting married after he graduates nursing school and we can hardly wait. Whats so funny about that is he went to school to be a mechanic and is a really good mechanic but there were not enough jobs for mechanics so he decided there were always jobs in the medical field so he decided to changed his career so I have a Mechanic Nurse so he can fix almost anything lol. I have never found anyone I have so much in common with and have so much fun with and can talk to about anything and who cares so much about me and I about him. Now I know my mama was right I have found my other half. We are not only best friends we are soul mates put together by God. Thank you God.
