Roll With The PunchesI was knocked for a loop when I tore up my knee playing basketball. I was playing professionally in Europe when it happened and I was going to the NBA the next season but somehow I knew that wasn't going to happen when I felt my knee give way. Change of plans. I started my own successful business, sold it and started another.
After I torn up my knee I met the love of my life. She helped me start my business, shared in my pains, help celebrate our successes, and stuck with me during a 4 year stint in the military. One spring we were busy planning our wedding when a police officer appeared at my door and somehow I knew I wasn't going to get married that next summer. There was an accident and my future wife had been killed by a drunk driver.
I met another women a year after I sold my first business. After a short romance we got married. For years I thought we were in love and were happy. We took vacations all over the world. We enjoyed so much together or so i thought. THen i came home early from a business trip. Instead of staying another night i decided to surprises my wife. I took the red eye and was looking forward to surprising her. I got home and found a strange car in the driveway.... at 5 in the morning?. Somehow I knew my marriage was over.
Life goes on
