They say that everything happens for a reason. I totally agree. But it is not that easy to see when things are happening to you that you cannot understand. It is only after the fact, looking back that we can connect the dots. Then, we can understand that all the things happened for a reason.
If you really think about it, life is a mystery. I can even say that life is a miracle. We can predict all we want but nobody really knows what tomorrow holds (all of a sudden I am a philosopher...)
Never in my dreams have I thought that my life would be like this, until I met this precious friend. This person changed my life forever. After many attempts to have a friend like this, I finally gave up. You see, I had a checklist to follow, if I met any friend who did not meet these requirements, either there was not a chance to be with the person, or I will do my best to make them change (try that one..)
As I said, I finally gave up. It was too hard for me. I had to let go and focus on the things I could control. It did not take long, in fact it took only twelve days to finally meet my friend, whom I now call my best friend. We met in a very unusual way, but I did not really care. I finally met what I was looking for.
In a matter of days, my life changed forever, No more extensive traveling, no more eating stuff uncontrollably (very hard one as you know that in terms of food I am always open to opportunities), no more staying out longer than required (that was an easy one for me). I was then a very disciplined man, just because I met my now best friend. Who would not want a friend like that?
Most of all, since I met this person, I feel that my life has now meaning. I have someone to take care of, someone who cares about me in a way that I was not used to (for a very long time), and someone who tells me that all will be fine no matter what. Someone who loves me unconditionally
As you have guessed, I am talking about....my wife. Words cannot express how I am so thankful to have her in my life. I always tell her, and I mean it, that she is an answer to my prayers. But never, in my whole imagination would have thought it would be like this. All I had to to was to pray and let go on who, how, when this person would come in my life. It took only twelve days after my prayer, and life was never the same.
My prayer for you is to find someone who can change your life for the good, and if you have that special person, cherish him/her, cause life is too short not to appreciate every moment of it.
Moral of the story? Do you want to get married to a special person? Just create a check list of how the person should be and give all that up.
Always a pleasure
