The Untold Love At First Sight Story

This is my post-valentine treat - an untold story from the past. Was it love at first sight for me? You decide. :-)

I just had my successful job interview with the owner and CEO of the company that day. So, when I told a good friend of mine who was already working there ahead of me that I was already shaking hands with the CEO and got the job I was applying for, he happily toured me around the department to get the feel of the office where I would soon become a part of.

It was an "unofficial" tour because it's actually HR's task to welcome and introduce me as the newest addition to the work force. Anyway, looking back now, I was really glad my friend toured me around that day because that day happens to be the first time I caught sight of the man that I didn't know would become my husband three years later. :-)

The first time I saw him, he wouldn't even look up because he was very busy and seemed too preoccupied with computer-related tasks that he actually didn't mind that a visitor was inside the office. Because of that, I instantly took notice of him - the looks, his eyewear, and how shy I think he was! Man, I thought I heard a song playing and birds happily chirping in the background. For a moment there, I already felt that unexplainable feeling in my heart. Strangely, I felt some kind of connection to him. At that time, it felt like he looks just like the future husband I envisioned to look like. However, my good friend told me that he's already "taken" and in some kind of a long-term relationship.

So, instantly I came back to my senses and totally dismissed that happy feeling in my heart. But little did I know, things just fell into place. I believe God was preparing him to become my husband three years later. I realized now that "Destiny is real" and we did not just invent it. :-)

Talking About The New Normal

What's the new normal these days? This got me thinking today, and I thought I should make a list. 1. Wearing Masks. Obviously, it'...
