Strangers in the house - A love story
Hi everyone my name’s John. My better half is Caroline you already know her.
How did we meet?
I lost my first day wife, Carol, to breast cancer. Months of intense grief brought on pleurisy. I had trouble moving and breathing. A friend was coming round regularly to check on me.
One afternoon the doorbell rang, I struggled to the door, opened it and there stood this beautiful young woman that I didn’t know.
She said “hello John, I’ve come round to see how you are”.
I invited her in and we sat in my lounge. She actually sat in my favourite chair and obviously felt so relaxed that she removed her boots and swung her legs over the side!!
We chatted effortlessly for 2 hours and then I said to her “by the way what is your name?”
She gasped and leaned forward in the chair, obviously very embarrassed!
She explained that my friend was unwell and had asked her to pop round. She thought my friend had explained the situation.
We started laughing.
A little while later she said she had to go home. We got up and went through to the kitchen. We looked at each other and she said “I know what you want” and threw her arms around me and kissed me - WOW!!
We met up the next day and within 24 hours we knew it was right. We were married 6 weeks later and have been on honeymoon for 27 years.
So sometimes letting strangers into your home can have a positive, life-changing effect.
All the best
