Around 6 years ago, after 41 years of marriage, my wife decided she had better things to do with her time then to spend it with me. When she left I was left with what felt like a huge hole in my chest where my heart used to be. Strange part is, before she left, we were getting along better than we have in many years. I was totally taken aback by her actions and had no clue why she decided to do this. After I got my head back straight I told myself that, if she didn’t return in a year, I would be done with her and would move on with my life. When that year had passed I had pretty much bottomed out and was pondering what reason I had to continue trudging through my miserable life.
Then I saw this pretty lady dancing by herself on the VFW dance floor and poof. We have been together for 4 years now and I can honestly say I’ve never been happier. I won’t go into details, but leave it to say my life changed completely over night and I have never looked back. Seems my ex did me a favor by leaving.
So, my point being…never give up. Life has a way of throwing curve balls that you don’t see coming. Just keep your chin up and your eyes open and be ready when that ball smacks you in the head.
