On April 1, 2000 Angela and I went out on our first date. (Insert your own “fool” joke here) Eight years later, well, here we are. Happily married and enjoying our lives together.
I point that out not so much as a way to point out how very lucky I’ve been since then (I have), but because eight years ago, I had absolutely no idea this would happen.
You see, sometimes life is like that. One date with the thought of “let’s see what happens”, turns into 6 years and counting of marriage. You just never know where things will take you in life. That’s all the more reason to experience it as much as you are able. The experiences might not end up the same way our date from 8 years ago did, but you’ll be better for whatever experiences come your way!
