Here in The United States we pay attention to a small, underground dwelling rodent to predict our future today. ITS GROUNDHOG DAY HERE IN THE STATES!!!!
For the past 6 years, I haven’t paid any attention to the groundhog, why?! Because the love of my life came into my life today, 6 years ago!!
February 2, 2012 my wife and I were working together at our local Walmart. She always picked the lane right next to me from when she arrived in October through February 2, 2012. I had to have been the most clueless 36 year old EVER!! Because it was this day in 2012 when she finally had enough!!
“You have to come to my house tonight and meet my dog, Rollie! You don’t even need to get out of the car, just come meet the dog and you can go home.” See, I lived in the high rise apartments here in town back then, so it was no problem to do a meet and greet with her dog. So, I followed her to her house to meet her dog, Rollie.
This dog is the most loyal, friendly, lovable dog you could ever meet!! He is a chocolate lab, Rottweiler mix. Beautiful brown coat! And he will lick you to death and probably step on you if you let him get too excited!! Which is what he did when we first met!! He crawled up to the window of my car and started licking my face and hugging me as only a dog can! Then, she stepped in and said, “MY TURN!!” And that was the moment she changed my life forever!!
You know how “They” say you just know? Well, after she kissed me, a few times, I looked at her and said, “I guess we’re more than friends now, huh? The friendship is dead!” And the rest, as they say, is history! But we have a whole future to look forward to. We’ve been married almost 5 years now!! Where does the time go? 6 years ago today, she changed my life forever!!
