When a Moment and a Lifetime Merge

This is an excerpt from my book “From the Heart of a Grateful Man” which is scheduled for release next month:

When a Moment and a Lifetime Merge

When I was recently married and still in my early twenties, I met a woman at work who looked to me to be in her fifties and who told me a most amazing story.

She’d stopped at a traffic light when she was in her teens and a car pulled up beside her. She casually looked at the driver and he looked back at her. They’d never seen each other before.

Without either saying a word or making a motion, she pulled over and so did he.

They were married shortly later and were still happily married when I met her about 30 years later.

Sometimes people just KNOW.

That’s the instant when a moment and a lifetime merge.

With Love,
