It felt like just the other day when Kate and I had just met. We became fast friends over a pizza at Mamma Mia’s in Homestead, Florida. We talked, cried, laughed, cried a little more…and I walked away knowing that I had a friend for life.
Fast forward to another evening on the couch, with chai tea in hand…I remember the sparkle in her eye as she shared details about this guy she had been talking to. Their first date was out in the middle of a deserted back road in the Florida Redlands. Angel told Kate to bring a picture album and he would do the rest. There they sat…over a sweet meal in the middle of nowhere with Goya (his dog) running around enjoying the open fields while they exchanged stories, pictures of their life journeys and favorite memories up until that point. (Talk about sweetest first date ever!)
There are a lot of things we shared that first day in the restaurant. One of them was, we can try to plan a lot of things in this life-but most of the time, it will never turn out how we expect it to and it makes all the difference when we allow our creator to direct our steps and write our story….oh and what a beautiful one He wrote this day.
