What Happened Back In September Of 1997?

It was this month. Back in 1997. When I met Lisa. My wife. I don't remember the exact date, but it was 25 years ago. I was working at one of the two X-Tra Marts in Laconia. She was the manager of the other one. A few times a week, she delivered fresh sandwiches to the location I was working at. 

There was a connection. We often chatted. She lingered a bit longer A few months later. she asked me out on a date. Pizza. Beer. A walk to the lake. Where I swam. At night. Something I never would have done. 

We lived together for a short time. It wasn't the right time. We parted ways for a long time. However. That connection was unbreakable. 

We held on to photos and memories and often attempted to inquire where the other was during our separation. When the time was right, the Universe and Fate shifted. Did numerous shimmy shakes. 

In 2010, we reconnected. In 2011, she met me at the airport. In 2012, we were married. 

The rest, as they say, is history. 

We are living our best life. 

We have lived and learned along the way. 

We have a life that we don't need a vacation from. 

Our senior and special needs furry kids keep us on our toes. 

I would not trade our life for anything or anyone. 

I give thanks to our lucky stars each and every night.
