You were meant for me......


I believe there are people that are meant to be together.  I’m even more convinced of that since meeting Ron again and falling in love.  I can’t really convey how he was always just a thought away.  I recognized what a special person he is when we were just children.  I definitely had a crush on him all the while we were growing up but at the same time I never expected it to be anything more.  Maybe because we were too shy to talk to each other so our relationship was based on shy glances and timid smiles.

After high school graduation I lost track of him and went on about my own life.  By the age of twenty I was married to my college sweetheart and had no idea about where life had taken Ron.

As my life unraveled and my marriage with it I found myself at my ten year class reunion.  I was already grieving the loss of my marriage although the papers were still unsigned.  I looked across the room and saw Ron.  He was beaming with his new bride beside him.  I remember watching him and thinking, “That is what I want to experience.”  I want someone to look at me the way he looks at her.

Next thing I knew I had crossed the room to say hi.  The first words I had ever spoken to him.  He introduced his new bride and we exchanged cordial small talk before I walked back to my seat across the room.

That was it……….

But every night of the 25 years that followed my divorce I wished…..I wished on stars…. and I prayed for someone that would look at me the way Ron looked at his bride that night.

And…….then one day someone did………and it was Ron.

It was clearly meant to be. Sometimes that shyness thing works against us, though.
