This is the story of how Kelli and I ended up living across the street from each other. On Thursday I posted a blog about Kelli stopping by for a visit.
This morning I asked if meeting a friend like Kelli is a chance encounter or God ordained.
This meeting was definitely God ordained. Kelli and Doug moved here when Doug became the music minister at our church. After they had been her for about five years Doug took a position in another state. A few years later my ex-husband was transferred with his job to a town a few hours north of where Doug and Kelli lived at the time. Shortly after that Doug and Kelli moved back to their home state of Oklahoma and we lost touch with each other.
I had always planned to move back to Amelia Island Florida but I didn't know that Doug and Kelli planned to move here. A few months after I had moved back, I saw Doug and Kelli at church and to my surprise, they told me that Doug had bought a local business and was relocating. Kelli would have to wait until a job in hopital administration opened up in this area.
Nine months later Kelli found a job in Florida. One evening a mutual friend saw me in my yard and said, "Guess what? Doug and Kelli just bought the house across the street, isn't that neat?" So they moved to Isle de Mai, just like I had done about 18 months earlier.
If you are a REALTOR you're probably wondering why they didn't buy the house from me. That's still another blog!
