Thought I'd Been In Love Before.....I was married three times! The reasons for the first two were actually a little hilarious in the way they came about, but the third time I married a 'nice man' because I had three little boys who longed for a father when theirs never showed. After 26 years of trying, living separately, serious illness from the stress I finally got out of that one.
Last summer I went to my class reunion and spent some time getting reacquainted with a very funny and intuitive guy. I never knew he was so shy that he has difficulty speaking in a group because he's not that way with me. I discovered that I was spending the summer not far from his home so we agreed to meet up and find something to do; he's a been a widower for a few years and new to the area just as I am.
We went to a festival together after a couple of days of wandering and there I met a palm reader. I don't believe in this so much, but I was enjoying the sun and the day so I paid her $10 to do a reading. She said my soul mates were very near - there were two, she didn't know, one might be the gentleman I was with..... It was only a few days later that I realized that this man had come to know me so easily and so well that I'd shared some of my most personal moments with him. From that day we've been nearly inseparable. He's my best friend, he's understanding, loving, hilarious, fun, sweet, sometimes cranky and impatient. I never grow tired of being with him and we've been through some tough times together already.
Ladies, the quiet ones will amaze you.
Today I ran into that same palm reader in a large city near where we live at a chocolate festival. She was sitting with a group, kind of hidden behind a poster when I walked by. I said "I'm no way talking to one of you, I did that once and now I'm living with a guy!" She popped up and said "That was me! I remember you!" It was just so fun that after eight months and how many readings, she remembered me.
In introduced her to my guy, she grabbed my hand and said "Oh, I have chills". Literally shivered. I looked at my palm and the two lines that last year were very short have changed; one is much longer and the other has faded nearly away. While she was holding my hand the longer line turned beet red and she said with great satisfaction "Yup, he's it. You're married in every way but formally."
I feel lucky lucky lucky and loved!
