As I look back at my life, I am always amazed at how the pieces came together and unfolded… It is almost as if my life has been a series of well timed building blocks that stacked one upon the other.
If I had not had scoliosis, would I have become a nationally ranked swimmer?
If I had not become a nationally ranked swimmer, would I have been accepted to matriculate at Dartmouth College?
If I had not attended Dartmouth, would I have ever met my “farm boy” from Nebraska?
If I had not ever met my farm both from Nebraska, what path would my life have taken?
Without him, I most certainly would NOT have had the opportunity to manage a cattle feed yard in Central Nebraska!
I am nostalgic today because last week I wrote an essay on how Matt and I met and our subsequent love story. Matt’s and my story will be included in a book entitled So… How Did You Meet Anyway? by Susan Amestoy. Susan found me via “Feed Yard Foodie”, and asked me to contribute Matt’s and my story to her collection. My essay is featuring on her blog site this week, and can be found at:
The essay is entitled “It Just Felt Right” and it is the September 10th post on her blog site. It warmed my heart to write the essay and hopefully it will warm yours to read it! Happy Monday!
