There are days when I lay in my bed in complete disbelief over the events that led to me meeting my wife. A story to one day be found bounded with dust in an ancient library in the future as a timeless classic. This is a story that spawns photo albums of little ones and generations of a new offspring. A family that was guided by Two hearts that quickly became one. This is the beginning of how I met my wife as it really happened.
I had recieved a call from a friend from work that his friend in need had trouble with a car and wanted me to check it out. I have never been one to back down from someone in need. I will be honest I truly didnt want to go out that afternoon. It was boxing day and I wanted to spend time with the family. My fathers rants that was like Christmas choirs but once s year; complaining over the mess of the previous days wrapping paper filled with piney needles over the carpet floor. My mother baking her medley of shortbread, cookies and famous cherry surprises. Yet like a soldier ready to go on the front line I jumped into my car and pulled out of the Driveway. The drive was calm and still like an ocean without a single sail for miles. The only ripple of excitement was the scenic view.
It was as normal of a day as any other day and for those 30 minutes it took me to reach my destination it would of never occured to me that I would night journey back home the same man. Some journeys in life changes you and this was one of them.
You have reached your destination said the GPS as I pulled into the drive of a wonderful home of brick and panoramic windows that reminded me of that home cottage life feel. Laid back and quiet. I got out of my car and it didnt seem like anyone was home. I am thinking I drove all this way and no ones here stood up like a blind date. I walked up and rang the bell. Someones coming. The door opened with a halo of light that blinded me as I looked into those angel blue eyes. I had never seen anything so beautiful her face gave this soft porcelean doll look that showed an innocence I can only describe as pure. My heart leaped as I asked about the car that needed looking at. The beautiful woman said my mom is picking up a friend and will be back soon. I could of went back to my car and waited but I heard the words come out ” can I come in its a little cold outside”. Sure she said. I cant describe what caused me to say that. I know it felt like a magnetid field attracting me towards her. We sat on the coach with a conversation that moved as smoothly as a butterfly flaps its wings. Interrupted by the car only after our first day was set. We went out to work on the car all steps were a excuse to be together. This was the day I met my wife and we have been by each others side every since. The fabric of our romance was sewn together with our love for one another.
