Justin and I met in October 2006 because of LDS Mingle. However, it is an unlikely story. I was in the chat room carrying on with my friends joking about how men are lame and don't call girls; you know that typical girl gripe session. When one of my friends got the bright idea to post her phone number in the chat room. After her another girl and then me. I went along because I thought there is no way a guy is going to call me out of the blue like that. I was right, I did not receive a call but what I did get was a text message.
Justin texted me and we talked that way for a few minutes and said our goodbyes. For the next couple of weeks he texted me a hello here and there. I thought nothing of it, not lending it much thought, until one day I received another text. I had never saved his number nor did I recognize it so when I got the random text I decided I would call to ask who it was. Little did I know that the man who answered the phone would be my future husband. We had never talked on the phone before so when I heard his voice I did not recognize it. We talked for a couple minutes, and I still thought nothing of it. I went on several dates and carried on with my life.
We began talking and texting a little more until we were talking on the phone 15-20mins a day and texting countess times. Strangely enough I still don't know what really happened, but just like the stroke of a key it all changed. He began to matter to me and I could not wait to hear his voice. One thing led to another and we decided we should meet the last week of December. But just like everything else in our story that also changed. The day before Thanksgiving I got a crazy urge to go to Salt Lake city. I don't know why or how because it was not something I had even considered in thought before that moment. The drive would have been to far so the next thing I knew I had purchased a ticket to fly out on December 1st.
I missed my flight, the first flight I have ever missed, nothing went according to plan. Truth be told every time I have met someone through mingle things have gone perfectly in terms of preparation including knowing I was attracted to the person before ever calling or talking to them. Everything about Justin and I's experience is unique. On November 24th Justin told me he loved me and that I had stolen his heart. I knew that I loved him to but I was still unsure if that love could extend into real physical life. Lucky for both of us it did.
Justin's heart until now belonged to another woman. A woman who gave him two of the most beautiful little boys in the world. She was strong, compassionate, loving, and is dearly missed. I feel so fortunate that he has made room for me in his heart and I pray that I will raise her children and love him as she would have. We both agree that she had a hand in putting us together and we will never lose sight of that. I am so lucky to have found a best friend, future husband, two beautiful little boys, and a loving family all rolled into one.
When we met at the airport, the second he put his arms around me I knew it was real and that I had finally come home. Our story began with a simple text message, there is no telling how, where, or when you will meet the right one, but believe me when I say there is no predicting meant to be it just happens. I am moving to Salt Lake City in January so we can continue adding chapters to our unexpected fairytale.
I met a wonderful, fantastic, talented, woman in New Mexico who I can see spending the rest of my life with here and after. OOOOOHHHHH YYYYEEEEEAAAAHHHHH!!!!!!!
