London, Nov 10 (ANI): Former US President George W. Bush has revealed in his memoirs that he fell in love with wife, Laura when he saw her stunning blue eyes.
"She was gorgeous. She had stunning blue eyes and moved so gracefully," The Daily Mail quoted him as talking of a party at a friend's barbecue in Midland, Texas, in July 1977.
"She was intelligent and dignified, with a warm and easy laugh. If there is love at first sight, this was it," he added.
Within a few weeks he had even met her parents.
"We were a perfect match,' he writes. 'I'm a talker; Laura is a listener. I am restless; she is calm; I can get a little carried away; she is practical and down-to-earth," Bush said.
"Above all she is genuine and natural. There is no phoniness about her. Her appeal was immediate and constant," he said.
Just two months later he proposed and she immediately accepted.
"While I couldn't pinpoint it at the time, I believe there is a reason Laura and I never met all those years before. God brought her into my life at just the right time, when I was ready to settle down and was open to having a partner at my side," he said.
"Thankfully, I had the good sense to recognise it. It was the best decision of my life." (ANI)
