I am going to divert off the usual from topic of it’s Almost Tuesday for a moment because I would like to share a love story that will amaze you, and make you all a true believer in fate.
It was 2005, and almost a year after losing my son, I had returned to Florida, fighting jurisdiction of the Texas courts, and began settling into a new place. I had a review coming up with Texas Dept of Family & Protective Services for an administrative review, in and ask I boarded a greyhound bus with my files packed in my bag, to go back to Texas and meet with the caseworker face to face.
It was one of my last chances to overturn the decision to take my rights from my son, so this trip was super important to me.
I left Clearwater Florida on my way back to Dallas TX, and in Mississippi, I met a guy at the vending machines during a stop. He was traveling from Florida as well, going to fort worth. We began to talk and sat with each other the rest of the way. We got along very well, and even had a few umm spicy moments …
He remembers my knee high socks and remembers me pointing to a billboard in east Texas out of the window and saying “that’s my brother”(a very successful attorney in Longview Texas, he has billboards up everywhere).
He remembers thinking I was nuts when I said that was my brother.
When I got off the bus I never looked back. I got his number but never called. I didn’t even remember his name. So how do I know what he remembers about me?
Well in 2014 I was lost, driving in Halton City TX,a suburb of fort worth, when I saw a guy on a bicycle, and thought he was very good looking so I offered him a ride. We have been together ever since, and in fact, we just got married in may of 2021.
It wasn’t until around 2019 that we were talking one night and began to share secrets. He started telling me about this girl he met on the greyhound bus once, and made out with her. I said no way you are stealing my story!!
It turns out that five years into my relationship we realized that 15 years before we had met and made out on the bus and left never looking back.
Can anyone calculate what the odds are that something like that would happen?
It goes even deeper.
My husband was in a boys home as a child. He was in the VERY SAME boys home as my Abuser/ex, and KNEW HIM as a child!!
What are the odds?
At age 50, I remarried and am deeply in love and KNOW that fate is real!!
Tell me your thoughts and stories… Has anyone else experienced something like that?
Godspeed to you all…
