Topic: Wow! (03/11/10)

TITLE: All I Can Say Is...

One day as I was washing dishes, my cell phone chimed indicating I had a text message. When I looked to see what it was and who it was from, I couldn't believe my eyes. My heart stopped beating and then started racing as fast as my mind. Could it be possible? Is what I am seeing real? Is it really him? How did he find me?

I immediately sent a text back to verify if it really was him. He responded that it was truly him and all I could say was, “Wow.”

It had been over 30 years since we had last seen or spoken with each other. We were childhood sweethearts and lost touch with one another. I never thought I would see him again much less hear from him. He couldn't believe that he found me and I was so blown away that he had; all we could say was, “Wow.”

Peppered throughout our conversation that night were expressions of disbelief that we were actually talking to one another. It was a sense of fairy-tale and dreaming that affected the both of us. We constantly said to each other, “Is this really happening? Is this real? I can't believe it! This is a miracle! This is incredible! I am so amazed. I know God had His hand in this. Wow!”

It's the expression to describe a feeling, a moment of complete awe. When something happens that was totally unexpected, whether it is good or bad, it's the only word left to say after, golly, gee whiz, incredible, I can't believe it, cool, I am blown away....

It's the expression family members and friends say when they hear we got married a month after he found me.

And it's what we still say to one another, after all other forms of expression have been used when we discuss with one another about the miracle of being together as husband and wife. Wow!

What a great story of romance. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Put a smile on my face and yes, wow says it all!

What a cool thing - and yes, definitely a God/Wow thing. Thank you for sharing!

Very good

Cool--I'd love to hear how he got your cell number!

This was fun to read, and I'd have like more--perhaps the dialog between the two of you. That would make it more "show" and less "tell".

Very good entry.

A love story for sure. I wanted to know though, why childhood sweethearts hadn't spoken in thirty years and a quick summary of that period. Sounds like chapter two is in order.
