I Shot an Arrow Into the Air ...

August 31st, 2009 at 04:59 pm

It fell to earth, and I DO know where!
(Apologies to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)

5 years ago DH wanted to source some new product for his business. I researched companies and recommended he buy from "Company XYZ" (which he did, and he still does business with them). 3 years ago "Company XYZ" sales rep "Mr. Jones" flew to Seattle for a meeting with my husband. On his return flight, "Mr. Jones" met flight attendant "Ms. Smith."

Today we received a very special piece of mail:

"The honour of your presence is requested at the marriage of 'Ms. Smith' and 'Mr. Jones' ... "

Tho' we had no way of knowing it at the time, it looks like Cupid lent one of his arrows to DH & I.

    Ahhhwwwe. Yeah. I bet they are both people who really appreciate all the people and things that coincided to bring them together.

    We debated but finally decided not to go. It would have been nice to go, but it would be a 13-hour drive each way, and we'd have to stay in a hotel for 2 nights. Originally the wedding was planned for a town near where I lived for 14 years, so we thought we'd combine the wedding with some reunions with friends for me, but they changed the locale and it's not near any place else we'd like to visit.

    I'm sure they will understand. We will send our best wishes and a Macy's gift card. Smile
