Three years ago today I almost didn't go to a BBQ . . . and I would've missed out on a life time of happiness.
Three years ago tonight, I met Kyle and I knew about 4 hours into our 8 hours of conversation that long evening, that he was going to be trouble. I also knew that he wasn't the sort of boy I could date because he was the sort of boy I would fall in love with.
It took a while but eventually we got it right. And I am awfully grateful to my friend who kept calling and texting me to tell me coming to her BBQ was not optional which is why I finally got in my car and drove the 30+ minutes to her house. Sometimes it is good to have persistent friends, isn't it?
I'll have to tell you the story of that night later, for now I have to get ready for my date.
For all that is wrong in the world, or in my corner of it, there is one thing that is awfully right. And for that I am forever grateful.
