We have this picture on our fridge. It is a picture of Ben when he was a baby. I love this picture, because it makes me laugh. Here's why:
Because Munchie is a near perfect clone of his daddy. I couldn't believe it the day that Ben's mom gave me this picture. She would always look at Munchie in the weirdest way, just stare at him, and I could never figure out what the deal was. Then she gave me the picture, and I see now why it would have weirded her out to see her son in my son.
But that's not what this post is about!
I was standing there at the fridge getting some water, a few days after rearranging our closet, starting at the picture.
Something was sticking in my brain.
Then it clicked. When I had cleaned out the closet to get the cabinets installed, I had pulled down a pile of pictures that I got from my Grandma and Grandpa's house when they moved.
One of those pictures was of me as a baby.
Now, ignore for a moment my incredible cuteness and just focus on the background...
We apparently got our pictures taken in the same studio when we were babies.
As I thought about this I remembered that my husband was going to the AWANA program at our church the same time I was (junior high).
And who knows what other places we've appeared at the same time without knowing each other.
Apparently, we've been unknowingly crossing paths since we were born. We were meant for each other. ;)
Happy Romantic Thursday!
