Wedding Bells are ringing
Dreams do come true...you just have to believe it. I do. Forty-five years ago I met him, my husband to be, at the University of Pittsburgh. We became friends and did a lot together: ski, tennis, movies, outings with various clubs, but never dated. A year later, we started to date and continued a nice casual relationship for a few years. Time and space interrupted our friendship and he went his way, I went mine. Last year, two years after the death of his wife of 37 years, he started looking for me. At the same time, I was looking for him. I signed up on Facebook in January, he signed up in February, and in March we reconnected. We've been inseperable ever since, and in February we are getting married! I never forgot him. He never forgot me. When asked, "What kind of man are you looking for?", I answered by describing my fiancee as I knew his spirit, his essence, as it was when he was 17. The essence of a person is forever steadfast and sure. Life experiences may create behaviors that are not necessarily a true reveal of a person, but if you know the spirit of that person, then you know. I know! btw...we are getting married on Valentine's Day. How romantic is that???
