I should’ve known that my mother, with all her witchery and intuition, would bring you to me. That approving stamp made it all so much more real and clear. Holy Shit, it was time! It was You! Of course, who else would have been more of a perfect fit? The glass slippah had been returned to the rightful owner and the fairytale begins …..
We slid to a precarious halt on the muddy grass as he ran infront of the heavy classic Benz to ensure our safety…. He was dripping in sweat, half naked and bronze in the morning sun. all three of us looked at each other in complete disbelief, is this for real, is HE for real? We all whispered in unison “Fuck, I HOPE this is the place!” He was the most beautiful thing we’d ever seen. My wife slid down from her perch on the back of my convertible classic Benz as my mother sprang from her seat with enthusiasm. I casually lagged behind, giving myself time to watch the interactions unfold between them. Although we didn’t make much effort to connect, we were very aware of each others presence. The scanning had begun.
It felt like he was studying me from the other side of the small gathering for what seemed like hours. His insistent stare numbing me. My racing heart was a give-away together with a sense of discomfort at his intensity. This was unusual for me at the time, to say the least. When he finally shifted his pose and gaze, he headed directly for my mother as though he had a plan. My mother welcomed his company and within seconds noticed his feet and hands and right away she knew without a doubt that he’d be significant in my life. She used every trick in the book to get my attention and have us formally meet. I could feel the tension build and wondered what the fuck was going on, knowing my mother was stirring her cauldron again.
When the appropriate moment arrived, I was summoned over. I was giddy and nervous as I approached them. My mother stepped between us immediately, with her back to him and announced quietly to me “PAY ATTENTION!” As if I wasn’t already. She turned and literally HANDED me to him. The page had been turned and the next chapter of my life had officially begun …… 7 months later, we were married.
A fairytale love story that took the breath away from anyone fortunate or close enough to witness. We were the ultimate inspiration for the kind of love that no-one believed in anymore, gave up on already or thought couldn’t exist in this life. We served as a catalyst for love in everything and everyone around us, a magnetic field so strong that even the most loveless were transformed into squishy believers. It was magic at its best and we were the wizards.
Our love story is one that will be etched in the hearts of many for years to come. We were on fire, alive, inlove and beaming for the world to see. It was thrilling beyond compare. Now, as the years have rolled on and we still remain the most inspiring couple I know, there is not a day that I don’t celebrate you, my love. I found the rarest gift of them all in you. I am in complete awe of your beauty, more now than ever.
I’m grateful to have such a sterling example in my life for unconditional love and support, generosity beyond any other individual I’v ever known, graciousness and unwaivering patience that blows my mind and a sense of devotion deeper than Hanuman himself. I landed the fucking jackpot! He is the gem of gems and he loves and adores ME!
