What was the happiest mistake you ever made?
I sent this to my mother in law instead of my hubby.
“Love you for no reason ”
She got so emotional, she happily sent me “love you too beta (daughter) ” in return.
After this, every conversation between us ends with saying “love you” to each other
I walked in to Starbucks one morning and saw the most beautiful girl I’d ever seen in my life. She was way out of my league and I was sure she had a boyfriend, or she would tell me to get lost if I said hi. But I thought if I didn’t at least say hello, I’d never know. So I stumbled over, looked at her book, and asked what she was reading.
She stood up to talk to me. We walked around the store (it was a Starbucks with a book store in Tokyo) and talked about things we liked. I got her number and off I went to work. We went out the next night, and I still wasn’t sure if she liked me. On the second date, I fell in love. I knew I wanted to marry her, but didn’t know how to make it happen.
But I asked her out again, and things started to click. Before long, I asked her to marry me. I met her parents and got their approval. I got back in shape and secured a position in Tokyo.
The day we moved in together, we started talking about coincidences and how small decisions can affect our lives. We talked about the day we met and all the different coffee shops in the neighborhood, and how we both had our choice of places to go that morning. But we both ended up at the same place.
Here’s the best part. There was an empty seat next to her at a big table, and I was going to ask if I could sit there. So I asked her why she stood up when I said hello.
“I was on my way to the bathroom.”
4 years later, we’re still madly in love.
