Wedding Day

Happy Anniversary!
So I was teaching in North Carolina when one of my former principals contacted me and offered a job in Berlin Germany. Since I had no strong ties to the US, I took advantage of the opportunity and accepted the job and moved to Germany.
When I started at my new school in Berlin, there were 26 new teacher also teaching at our school. There was one new teacher who caught my eye and I thought I might have a possibility with her. When we had our group events however, she didn't have a phone and she lived near none of us, so we were missing many opportunities to get to know each other better.

Chance Meeting (A Wedding Limerick)

My wonderful husband Mark and I are celebrating our 29th wedding anniversary. Happy anniversary Mark! This limerick is my gift to you. (How’s that for getting off cheap?)

Chance Meeting (Wedding Anniversary Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Our encounter took place on a train—
A chance meeting, though far from mundane:
A lucky converging,
With love soon emerging—
Once strangers, now wedded-bliss twain.

Meeting In Cardiff

When I was 20,right before I finished my nursing training, I became pregnant. I ended up losing the baby one month in.
I was really upset and broke up with the boyfriend, but eight months later, Simon (who is a vicar) was filling in for the hospital minister and we met. Not being religious, I don't believe in divine intervention, but maybe I believe in fate - I'm not sure. Anyway if you know your maths you'll work out that had I had the baby - Simon and I never would have met!

I'd had an appalling night shift in the A&E (accident and emergency), and early in the morning he met me outside sneaking a cigarette. We started chatting - I thought he was out to convert me,but instead we just had a little whinge about the long night and the mad drunk people who had been swearing at us. Simon took me for coffee and sympathy in a cafe, and we carried on seeing one another. According to him he decided that morning that he was going to marry me - but it took him 3 years to propose.
Now we've been married for one year.

SUMthing About SUMmer

The day after graduation, I was hanging out with my friend Lydia. We just got to my house and I realized I had left my keys with my sister, so we were locked out.In the meantime, we called Lydia's brother, Luke to come and hang out with us because I hadn't seen him since I had been back from Germany. So I said "Come over to the house I want to see you!" He came over and brought a "buddy" of his....
