All you gotta do is ask: a Friday love story
“The universe waits for the perfect time to whisper in your ear, ‘Look this way.’”—Amy Poehler
Thought I’d share a fun story to kick off the weekend.
A chiropractor from Marco Island was reading E-Squared. She asked for a sign about her relationship with her boyfriend who, after a beautiful winter together in Florida, was returning to Canada. Before boarding a plane to Tennessee (they were both flying to a friend’s wedding), she got very still and, from her heart, said, “Hey dude, I could use a sign about this wonderful man who is heading home soon to Canada!”
Here’s what happened:
1. The flight attendant congratulated them on their marriage. That was odd since a) they are not married, b) they are not engaged and c) they hadn’t mentioned they were heading to a wedding.
2. The taxi driver also congratulated them on their marriage. Again, why would he say something like this out of nowhere?
3. That night at dinner, after returning from the ladies’ room, she found a card waiting for her. It was from her boyfriend and it said, “When you know, you know.” Yep, even though she had no idea this was coming, he asked her to marry him.
4. The next day, at the wedding, where she was a bridesmaid, guess who caught the bouquet?
Congratulations to the happy couple. And congratulations to all of us who are starting to get it, that indeed the universe is just waiting for us to ask.
