I’ve an idea and I’m wondering if any of you would be interested? It was triggered by a conversation I had with a friend of mine online, and during it she mentioned meeting her now husband in the US in Gaelic Park. She spoke of the early moments of their encounter and their subsequent marriage. They’ve been together quite some time now, reared a family and lived their lives in the US. All from a moment shared many years ago. A moment that could quite easily have passed her by.
It reminded me, of how a spur of the moment decision led to my meeting ‘yer man’, and to over thirty years of ups and downs that we’ve shared since. It also reminded me of some of the elderly people I nursed, who spoke of regrets for letting someone go many years previously, or for choosing to remain to look after an elderly parent who was less than tolerant of sharing them with another.
So my request is, would you like to tell me your story? How did you meet? Was it love at first sight or long and blind? Did it all work out, or was it a love you can never forget but came to nothing?
I’m not sure about you, but I find nothing so fascinating as real life, and love perhaps the most interesting story of all. If you wish to remain anonymous that is no problem, otherwise I’m happy to share your blog and social media links here. Your story is your own so posting the same story on your own blog is not an issue. Equally if you are not a reader with no blog, I’d still love to hear your story or if you’ve already posted it on your blog but would be happy to repost it here I’d love to have it.
Depending on whether anyone is interested I was thinking of posting the stories perhaps one a week, maybe at the weekend?
To set us all off I’ll get my act together and begin with my own. Hopefully tomorrow. Mmm now I must try to dust off those memories, put on my rose tinted glasses and go back to those early days of love and excitement.
