Thankful for My Soulmate...

Thankful for My Soulmate

Many years ago, I was in a session with a metaphysicist in Houston. Some of my co-workers had gone for fun and we all ended up giving it a try.

As I sat there, she told me that my young man and I were not married but larry and kathythat we would be someday.  I just had to give him time.  She also said that we had been married to each other in at least 3 of our previous lives.

Of course, while I always keep an open-for-anything mind, I was a bit cynical because how in the world do you prove that!

 

However, after almost 40 years together, I have to say she was right. Larry and I never had a date, not in the traditional sense. We were part of a wonderful group at our apartment complex. We played water volleyball, cards, and went out as a huge group on Friday and Saturday nights.

I am forever grateful that the powers that be in the matchmaker world put us together.

He is my hero, my friend and the love of my life.

Larry was an F-4 pilot who sat nuclear alerts and air defense.  He has the calm that pilots have which balances my knee-jerk reaction personality.

He is also a problem solver.  Most of us look for solutions to a problem by going from point A to point B.  Larry looks for alternatives and not just the direct course of action.

I love the life we’ve had and wouldn’t have changed a thing about it.

 

So I guess you could say that the metaphysicist in Houston was right.

(by the way, she also told me that he was out buying a boat or thinking of buying a boat that day.  

Sure, I thought!  That night after work when I asked Larry how his day was...he said…

I was out looking at a boat for us!

Well Kathy Streib Some time ago you said you were twelve when you "first" met Larry. Now you say you were living and playing in the same apartment complex. Just how old were you?

And did you ever get that boat?

Ron and Alexandra Seigel that's why I love a good "chick flick."

Kathy Streib - As I was reading your amazing story, I kept thinking to myself, this would make a great novel, like The Notebook, or any of Nicolas Sparks books/movies. Then I read all the comments and came upon feedback from someone very insightful and that would be Michael Jacobs. Did he steal my thoughts before I read your post? Perhaps I need to find a metaphysical wizzard in DFW?

Kathy, knowing that Larry is the same as my Larry (in name and soulmate-quality), it is wonderful to flesh out your history, having already been aware of how you feel about him. I think I have to say this is one of my blogposts of yours. 

That metaphysicist--where is she now?? We could all tap into her intuitive sense for knowing what will be.
