When Fate Comes Knocking!
By: Tiffany King
I'm a classic romantic at heart, which is why it wasn’t much of a stretch for me to write about soul mates and destiny. For those of you that follow me, you may have seen how my husband recently hijacked my blog to write up the sweetest post for our seventeenth wedding anniversary.
To think that we have made it for seventeen years is awe inspiring to me, when by all accounts so many factors could have kept us from ever meeting in the first place. We met in September of 1993, but before that we had several instances where fate tried to push us together. Though he was older than me by a few years, our paths seemed destined to cross. We lived in a large suburb not far from Denver, had no friends in common, and did not go the same schools, yet we both later discovered just how much our lives seemed to intermingle before we had ever met. For example; we found out years later that we both attended a premiere midnight showing of Jurassic Park in the same theater. Also, after we were married, we came across a picture of a girl dressed as Madonna during Halloween that was taken were I worked at our local mall a few years prior, and it turns out he was there that night because he was dating her at that time. Finally, we figured out that I dated one of his college classmates casually and my husband remembers the classmate talking about me.
All of that being said, that's not where I think destiny stepped in. Prior to us meeting, I actually quit my job and left Colorado with no plans to ever return. When things didn't work out, I decided to return, but I did not go back to my previous job. Instead, I began working at Blockbuster video. That’s when our paths finally crossed. I had been at Blockbuster for several months when my boss asked for volunteers to help pack up a store that was being closed. My husband happened to work at the store that was being closed, and that's where we finally met. We didn’t talk that day, though he later confided in me that he thought I was cute and that was ultimately why he picked my store for his relocation.
From the day of our first date, we have never been apart for more than one night (I miss him too much if the separation is longer, LOL). Do I believe he is my soul mate? Most definitely. Do I believe we were fated to meet? Completely. I love him more today than I did the day we first declared our love for each other, and I still get butterflies in my stomach when I think about him. So, as you can see, it is quite easy for me to write about soul mates, destiny, and romance because my life is living proof it exists. I'm sure many of you have similar stories and are just as happy as my husband and I are. For those of you that are still searching for that perfect someone, keep your eyes and your heart open. Fate may be trying to send love your way, question is, are you ready to receive it?
I don't know about the rest of you but that post totally had me going, "Awwww!" Thanks so much for sharing Tiffany! Such a great guest post.
What about you? Do you have a similar story of how you found love? Do you believe in fate? If so, Tiffany and I would love to hear what you have to say in the comments!
