Some things just jump out of a page and grab you. Or an email. Or a website. Or a commercial.
Yea – – I’m a sap. Bet’cha didn’t know that, huh?
I received an email this evening from someone I haven’t heard from in a few months. She isn’t a close friend. . . more of an acquaintence, of sorts. Actually, she’s a client. She’s about my age. It was one of those long, rambling emails where it seems like forever before she actually gets to the point of the email. She spent about 8 paragraphs talking around what she wanted, and why – – and then finally got to her point.
That’s not my point, here, however. The first time I ever exchanged emails with her was in July of this year. I’ve probably exchanged a couple dozen emails with her ever since.
Her husband died last year, and she’s trying to cope and greive. One of the statements she made within the long rambles and verbose sentences:
“I have found that half a soulmate is a pretty hard thing to be”
The words caught in my throat as if I had said them, myself.
I stepped out of my office and gave Chris a kiss.
See? I’m sappy.
