Valentine’s Day

Heart of the Milky Way - Valentine's DayThe first Valentine’s Day Christy and I spent together was completely unplanned. It was 13 years ago and we hadn’t started dating yet. Since Matt, my roommate, and I were both dateless, we decided to go with a couple of friends to hear the African Children’s Choir at Grace Fellowship.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that Christy was at the same concert with a group of her friends. “Let’s go sit by them,” Matt said to me. That was fine with me. Like I’d said before, I was all for any chance to get closer to her.

When we came to their row, Matt made me go first. Conveniently, Christy was sitting close to a bunch of empty seats. I still say Matt was trying to set us up. He insists he was just letting me go first (I think he was trying to sit closer a girl that was in our group…but I might be mistaken). Even though I was a little annoyed, I was thrilled to get to sit by her.

So that’s how Christy and I spent our first Valentine’s Day – listening to the African Children’s Choir.

See? That must mean it’s destiny for us to adopt from Ethiopia. Or maybe just one of those beautiful ironies. Irony can be a good thing sometimes, right?
