Do you believe when two souls are destined to meet they will be drawn to each other over and over again, just waiting for the right moment? When I was sixteen I was dating a guy who wasn't Italian, but lived in the heart of an Italian neighborhood. I travelled to his parents house continuously for over a year. More than thirty years later I met a man, this time an Italian, who grew up in that very same neighborhood. As we drove around his old neighborhood he showed me where he used to hang out, a few blocks away from where I myself was hanging out. He was nineteen at the time when he met his future wife. They raised three beautiful sons and a few years ago she passed away.
I have written before how we seemed to cross paths in other ways at other times, even moving to the same cities, to end up where we are now, only a few minutes apart once again. Nine months ago, the day had arrived when we were meant to stop crossing paths and run into each other. There is always a plan, we just don't know what it is, but we need to learn what we have come here to learn, keep the faith and stay open.
You can look back and trace the sequence of events, but the future will always be unknown. I continue to say my prayers and trust in the plan. If it's true his late wife and my father helped from above to bring us together, it takes 'a match made in heaven' to a whole other level. Thank you that I am divinely guided and protected and that everything is happening in divine order. Please put me on path, please help me out, I just want to figure it out, are just a few of my daily prayers. In order to receive, it helps to believe.
As we drove around that Italian neighborhood, he turned to me and said, "so you really believe in this stuff?" I replied, "how can I not?"
