I always love hearing stories about how couples met. It is so intriguing to me to hear about how two completely different people in the world happen to bump into each other at a seemingly random event, and through that meeting, history is made. It makes me think of that Brad Paisley song, All Because Two People Fell In Love. It simply is amazing.
My wife and I are days away from celebrating the anniversary of the day we met. It really isn't that I intended to remember the date way back when (and I most certainly had no idea what would become of us back then), but it just so happened to be at a special event we both attended which made the date easy to remember. We met and spent the remainder of the day talking and talking. We talked about everything and nothing and I quickly realized that I really liked this girl.
Do you remember the day you and your wife met? Do you celebrate that day in your relationship? If not, I encourage you to do so. More than anything it is fun to reminisce together about your crazy story. I like to hear my wife talk about what she was thinking and feeling at the time. Your wife will also appreciate that you're thinking about your relationship on a day other than your wedding anniversary.
Remember the unexpected gift at an unexpected time? Surprising your wife with a special date on the day you both met (or around the day you both met if its a little fuzzy to you*) will touch her heart and, in turn, touch your marriage.
Does anybody want to share about the moment you met your wife? Was it love at first sight or did it take a while for you two to grow on each other?
*If you don't remember the day you met, but you know that she does, make sure you get that information out of her during some casual event. If you get the date wrong, she'll most likely be distracted by that when you surprise her and it could ruin the effect you were going for.
