Kismet, destiny, call it whatever you want; does it exist? The little messages the universe seems to send our way can be quite evasive but, if you keep you're eyes open, you just might catch one or two! Am I crazy for believing in something like destiny? Can serendipity really exist in such a cynical world as ours? And most importantly, when is it at work in our lives? I've tested fate in more than one way; I've asked for confirmation and it's come through every time, at least when it counts. Should I go on believing that someday, my destiny will become reality? I may sound naive but in a world full of cynics, there's got to be some optimists, am I right?

I was in the grocery store NYE, and ran into a friend, a childhood friend I see once in a while. I didn't have a date for New Years Eve. She said come over to my parents; they're having a New Year’s Eve party. I took, what I thought was a pity date. As the night went on, we had a lot of fun. We talked about life in general, about the past, and about what was ahead us. Neither, she nor I have children; we both want children. We got into a serious conversation about marriage.
This woman and I played together as children. Our parents are very close, and ecstatic we are getting married (this is very rare, my family have never approved of a girl before, long story.) We attended the same high school and the same university, but we had always been friends but never dated. We did have this one moment skinny dipping in her pool, but she had a boyfriend and I had a girlfriend. It’s stupid looking back, but that was high school. My fiancé is beautiful; she has always been beautiful; but other than that one moment I never looked her way. She was the little girl I grew up with. It took 36 years to see she is the perfect woman that’s always been in my life.
I’ve loved my fiancé all my life. What happened in that moment when we were in high school? Why did we throw it away? I can ask these questions, but it doesn’t mean anything. We decided to get married on our first real date. I officially proposed four days after. Serendipity, fate, destiny, I don’t know? What I do know: I have the girl I always wanted; she’ll be my wife April 17, 2010.1
